Some students skip breakfast just to avoid dirty toilets in school


PUTRAJAYA: Some students skip breakfast in the morning just to resist the urge to use the toilets in school.

Education Minister Datuk Dr Radzi Jidin said the ministry will implement better toilet designs to ensure they are conducive to students and teachers.

“There are students who only eat after they have returned home. They refused to use the school toilets because they are dirty.

“Our toilets are always wet and students fear that they might dirty their clothes.

“Due to poor ventilation, the toilets remain wet throughout the day,” he said in a press conference after the Fuelling Education Transformation: Safe And Conducive Infrastructure event at Sekolah Sultan Alam Shah here on Monday (Sept 12).

Radzi said the ministry will implement better toilet designs in new schools and future maintenance projects.

“We want the focus to be on the design with better ventilation so that toilets are cleaner and don’t smell.

“We will take this approach seriously so that the whole school environment is very conducive for our students,” he said.

The Fuelling Education Transformation: Safe And Conducive Infrastructure event brought together Public Works Departments (JKR), contractors and consultants to share knowledge on the planning and building process.
