‘Betty Bus’ visited Leeds schools

SUPPORT: The Betty Bus is helping schoolgirls talk more openly about periods.

A new educational bus, designed to teach schoolgirls about periods in a more open and engaging way, visited two schools in Leeds last week.

The ‘Betty Bus’ stopped off at Co-operative Academy of Leeds and Kippax Greenfield Primary School.

During the visits female pupils from the schools 
took part in sessions where they learn about how periods can affect them 
both physically and emotionally.

They were encouraged to ask questions they might not feel able to ask while in the classroom.

The bus has been designed to support and enhance learning from ‘Betty for Schools’, a new curriculum-linked period education programme for teachers of pupils aged eight to 12.
