Early Campaigning

Writing about web page http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/shared/bsp/hi/education/04/school_tables/primary_schools/html/881_2799.stm

Thank you to Shelley Davis for keeping this letter and sending it to me.

I post it here for your amusement.

Yes, we had written to the County Council to complain about the tracing paper toilet roll.

The text reads:

Dear Miss. Davis and Miss. Leaver,

Thank you for your letter of 18.1.89 concerning the qua;lity of toilet paper at your school.

have consulted the Cleaning Services Manager about this matter. He
informs me that the choice of toilet paper in a school is the decision
of the Head Teacher and Caretaker/Cleaner in charge.

is a two-ply tissue type paper available from County Supplies which is
the same price as the one you are using at present. Research has shown
that the softer type paper tends to be used far quicker than the
stiffer one.

If you wish to pursue this matter further you
should speak to your Head Teacher who will, in turn, speak to the
Caretaker/Cleaner in charge about the options available.

I hope you will find this information useful. I am sending a copy of this letter to your Head Teacher for information.

Yours truely,


for County Education Officer

    remember at one assembly in infants school the head teacher got up and
    announced to the whole school that the girls were using far too much
    loo paper and that they should reduce the amount they used.

    Nicely humiliating for all concerned…

    Head was a woman btw.
