Workshops with Saskia

Saskia delivers Plastic Free Period workshops in schools and in the wider community proudly supported by WEN, the Women’s Environmental Network.

Saskia has trained as part of their two campaigns: Rethink Periods which is aimed at school age children, and Environmenstrual aimed at educating in the workplace, in the community and online!

Workshop topics

Workshops can be tailored to what you need to cover. Some of the topics I can deliver include the following:

  • Menstruation: Period Positivity, Busting myths and taboos
  • Puberty
  • Healthy Relationships and when is it abuse?
  • Body Image, self-esteem and building resilience
  • Social Media and the Law
  • Fertility and sexual reproduction
  • Sexual Health and Contraception
  • Consent, sex and the Law
  • The Girls project/ The Boys project (A look into the impact of peer pressure)

All lessons are LGBTQ inclusive and sex positive but please get in touch if you are a faith school, as our lessons can be adapted according to your needs provided they are in line with the new Guidance.

Some feedback from pupils

The best part about today’s lesson was how enthusiastic you were about periods!

Feedback from teachers & Parents

The aim of the workshop was to highlight and undermine external pressures relating to body image that may erode the pupils’ self-esteem. Not only did Saskia overwhelmingly achieve this but she had total buy-in from pupils.

An hour ago I felt totally overwhelmed and stressed at the thought of how to tackle the sex talk with my kids. Now I feel prepared…and calm! Thank you!
