Introduction for schools

The Cycle Show  and Agents on a Mission are perfect supplements to your current school sex education programme.

Ideal supplement to biology class

Sex education in schools is usually limited to a few lessons of biology and many sex education projects begin after a girl has experienced her first menstrual period. They are mainly focussed on issues of contraception, sexual health matters and the “threats” associated with fertility.

The MFM Project’s Cycle Show for girls supports lessons by integrating emotional aspects of physical changes. Multi-media and stories are used to take the girls on a journey through the female body which is fun and emotionally supportive. It also teaches the biological processes of ovulation, menstruation and fertilisation in an intuitive and sensitive manner.

How the MFM Project started

Watch this video to learn how MFM grew to being Germany’s most attended RSE programme. The research presented in the video shows that by participating in the Cycle Show that girls feel better about the way their body changes in puberty, more comfortable in their bodies and not afraid to get their first period.

We urge you as an educator to get behind our work and support our growth in the UK any way you can so please do get in touch.

Feedback from teachers

“…We decided to trial this workshop… the response from our parents and children was overwhelming. I was particularly impressed as an RE teacher that the speakers managed to create a positive attitude to the processes in your body. I’ve always noticed the discrepancy between cultures when discussing matters such as fertility. In our culture, the event is often repressed and hidden, the children are afraid and ashamed and it is not common to talk about it. After the workshop, the girls seemed to be at ease with their pending puberty and were even looking forward to it! We are definitely going to include The Cycle Show on our syllabus next year.”

“We consider the project an extraordinary contribution in helping shape young girls. The presenter radiated confidence and enthusiasm and this was reflected in the faces of the students. We hope that other schools take up this offer, teaching many girls this invaluable information about their bodies.”

“The project is just great. The evening gave parents information in an entertaining way. As a teacher, I think it’s great that this project exists. We have never been able to explain these concepts in such a playful way…. the children are more aware of the changes in their body and are much more relaxed…… I thoroughly recommend this project!”

“We the leaders of Year 6 would like to thank the organisers…. They had a lot of empathy for the children and their great visual aids were able to explain the physical and emotional changes of puberty – a current hot topic in our class. The content was very age-appropriate and it took the young girls not only over the fear of what to expect, but also awakened a positive attitude to their own body and its changes. Since the training, we’ve also noticed that the children have more understanding for each other’s genders.”
