Period products are a basic health necessity.
Western Australian students should not have to miss out on school because they don’t have access to period products.
That’s why the McGowan Labor Government is providing free period products to all public high schools in Western Australia.
From Term One next year, 220 public high schools will be provided period products to go in bathrooms for students in years 7 to 12 to access to free period products.
Improving access to period items keeps menstruating students engaged in education, improves public health outcomes, and helps them reach their full potential.
This is part of our government’s commitment to advance gender equality in WA and help improve education outcomes for women and girls.
