MENSTRUAL HYGIENE AND AWARENESS SESSION
Girl students of Class VI-VIII/Grade 6, 7 and 8 girls attended an awareness session on menstrual hygiene during the Beyond Excellence hour on 2, 7 and 9 August 2023. This session was conducted by the student Counselor at KENNEDY HIGH the global school.
The objective of the session was to bring self -awareness, self -confidence, and to provide insight into the physical changes during puberty and adolescence. A basic understanding of menstrual cycle and ways to maintain personal hygiene especially during menstruation was the main focus of this session. Students watched a video titled “Hello periods” after that discussion was carried out. Pair share method was used to identify the physical changes in them and they had an interaction which helped them to overcome feelings of inhibition.
Students came up with questions and queries for a better understanding. Myths about menstruation were also addressed. Students were guided to be culturally sensitive with a positive mindset, practice and adopt healthy and effective ways to maintain health and hygiene.
