How to Improve School Toilets?
It’s so often that school toilets are the cause of negative behaviour. Students will often avoid going to the toilet because of the dirtiness, broken locks, soap often is unavailable, lights don’t always work, unpleasant odours are around and all this combined suggests an unsafe environment. Research has found that when students are avoiding the school toilets they are often diagnosed with health problems.
The School Toilet Project is where a number of schools have refurbished their bathrooms to create a positive and safe environment. Painting the walls in bright colours and patterns and placing positive quotes on walls and cubicle doors, this allows students to feel positive and to feel that the school appreciates them.
