Periodical Diary came and delivered sessions to our Year 5 and 6 girls.  We were initially hesitant to see what the sessions could add to the healthy relationships curriculum but we were wrong to be!  The girls who attended benefited in so many ways.  They were able to discuss key issues openly and safely in an environment where the  new they would not be judged and where they did not have strong attachments to the delivering adults.  Karleen and Elizabeth were approachable and highly emotionally literate giving children sensitive and thought provoking information in a way that girls could relate to and were comfortable with.  They gave the girls strategies to deal with their emotions and feelings around menstruation and were able to signpost when necessary.  The periodical diary sessions were of real benefit to our girls last year and they will definitely be returning this year!
