Our solution is to support The School Toilet Project which is a nation-wide initiative which aims to empower students to transform school toilets across Australia. Urban Utilities is supporting this initiative by providing financial, project management and design support to schools in our service territory that wish to reform their toilets.
We put it to schools in the Brisbane, Ipswich, Lockyer Valley, Scenic Rim or Somerset area to apply for a ‘School Toilet Transformation’ grant. Primary schools could apply for a $3,000 grant and secondary schools could apply for a $7,000 grant.
“When I came up with the idea of inspiring schools to empower students to transform their all too-often bleak and disgusting school toilets, I hoped this project would resonate, and take on a life of its own. I had no idea, however, just how strongly the idea of revamping school loos would connect not only with teachers and parents - but with communities! The financial grants (and, just as importantly, the stewardship) offered by Urban Utilities is phenomenal. I love too that the focus here will be on encouraging kids to think about water conservation, and on how they can help ensure we have healthy waterways.” Dannielle Miller, Project Founder, The School Toilet Project
