A recent survey of 160 UK schools and 49 school and specialist nurses that revealed a universal call for minimum standards for school toilet facilities.
In addition, recent research has indicated that 36% of secondary school pupils say that their toilets are never clean, with 42% reporting that soap is only available sometimes, and another 19% that there is never any soap. 40% of secondary school girls say they hang on all day so they don’t have to use the school toilets, while 1 in 4 of all secondary school pupils said that their toilets were too disgusting to use.
It would be interesting to see how our Australian school toilets would fair under a similar survey.
