Tuesday 30 August marked Period Poverty Day for OLMC.

The Feminist Collective have spent months planning the day and we can see the awareness growing each year.

Thank you to all the students and staff who have contributed hundreds of packets of sanitary products that will be donated to women escaping poverty and domestic violence through McAuley Services for Women.

This was also an opportunity to learn about Period Poverty around the world and how we can all help to normalise this most natural part of life.

To mark the day and encourage conversations about periods, students were handed out a hand braided bracelet and invited a paint a fingernail red during pastoral.

Thank you to the Fem Coll students who spent many lunchtimes making bracelets and a special thank you to the Year 9 Horizon students who rolled up their sleeves to help out.
