Menstrual Hygiene Day
Students of Arab Unity school observed 28th May, 2019 as Menstrual Hygiene Day. They created awareness on the need of Menstrual Hygiene with a quote “bleed with pride and proud to be a woman” through speech and poem recitation during morning assembly. The school doctor Ms.Dimple Gupta conducted an awareness session on ‘Safe Menstrual Practices’ for Year 7 girls.
Along with highlighting the importance of menstrual hygiene management, such programmes aim at helping students to put aside the stigma and taboo associated with the words “periods” and “menstruation” and also to make them aware that they can act as agents of change to represent themselves and their group if needed.
