Year 13 Period Poverty Social Action

Year 13 Social Studies students have recently undertaken a successful sanitary product drive to raise awareness about period poverty, the inability to access period products.

They collected items at school and reached out to the local community by placing donation boxes at some of the local libraries. At the end of the drive, thanks to school and community contribution we received just over 60 packs of sanitary products, more than 600 pads, tampons and liners. These were all donated to the North Shore Women’s Centre.

This has become an annual event and we would like to thank the community for their ongoing support.
