Every student in British Columbia should have access to healthy and effective learning environments; lack of access to menstrual products can negatively impact students’ school attendance and their social-emotional well-being. Providing all students with convenient access to free menstrual products helps to support their full participation in school activities, reduces stigma and promotes gender equality. Menstrual products are readily available to students at Jackson, free of charge.
At Jackson, menstrual products are available in the counseling centre and office.
