The Betty Bus visits Year 7 pupils

On Tuesday 31st October, The Betty Bus came to Whitley Academy. 

The Betty Bus was visited during the day by our Year 7 pupils, to help create a generation of girls and boys in Coventry who are truly at ease talking about periods and how they affect girls.

On board, our pupils got involved with digital activities, including augmented reality, touch screen activities, and quizzes; before moving on to group work to discuss how periods affect girls physically as well as emotionally. 

Alongside this, the boys took part in a lesson to understand how girls may be affected during their periods.
