The $ 20.7 million scheme, which started this week, will make the sanitary items available mid-way through next year at every public elementary, high and specialized school in Victoria.

& # 39; Pads and tampons are just as essential as toilet paper and soap, & # 39; Daniel Daniels shared on Twitter.

& # 39; So from this week we will deliver them for free at our public schools. & # 39;

Girls on one of the first campuses to receive the pads and tampons, University High School in Parkville in the interior of Melbourne, say it will make a big difference.

& # 39; If we get our period unexpectedly, it is really good to have the necessary resources so that we can deal with it and continue our lives & # 39 ;, said an eight-year-old student who did not want to be mentioned.

& # 39; We do not want our period to prevent us from doing the rest of our activities, such as sports and school. & # 39;

The governmental schedule of the Andrews Labor was announced during last year's election campaign.

Schools also receive free waste bins for sanitary products under the program.

& # 39; We do not want our period to stop us from doing the rest of our activities, such as sports and school, & # 39; a girl said

The financing of $ 20.7 million is spread over four years.

& # 39; There are many girls and young women who do not have easy access to the type of pillows and tampons, sanitary products & # 39 ;, Andrews told journalists on Wednesday

& # 39; This is about dignity, it's about inclusive. & # 39;
