It is extremely important for schools to encourage cleanliness by teaching children the importance of hygiene. This is particularly important in washrooms, which harbour thousands of microscopic bacteria that can be harmful to the health of pupils, staff and visitors.
In addition to ensuring washrooms are cleaned regularly and thoroughly, it is extremely important to encourage pupils to keep their hands clean to help prevent the spread of germs.
Handwashing for at least 20 seconds, is one of the most important things a child can do to help avoid getting sick. Drying hands using single-use hand towels also helps minimise the spread of germs and bacteria.

While disinfectants and sanitisers are ideal for spot treating door handles, light switches, drinks machines, and similar high-touch surfaces – especially in crowded highly frequented venues – they are not good cleaners and cannot compensate for the efficiency of thorough cleaning action.
