The program is set to apply every state school with free tampons and pads in dispensers.
It has been implemented following a trial involving 31 schools in South Western Sydney and the Dubbo region.
"We have seen through the pilot program that providing sanitary items has a positive impact on educational engagement and attainment, " Sarah said.
Meanwhile, the Minister for Women, Bronnie Taylor, said that many young people have been advocating for the inclusion of sanitary products in schools, adding that the initiative is a step towards normalising the discussion of menstruation.
"By openly discussing periods, endometriosis and reproductive health we are removing the taboo around women's health issues," Bronnie said.
