Toilet Tactics is a fun user-friendly kit designed to help promote healthy bladder and bowel habits in primary schools and to improve or maintain the standard of school toilets.
The kit is divided into sections for teachers, students and parents and can be integrated into classroom activities for health education.
Toilet Tactics has been designed for use in Australian primary schools. The kit has been designed to involve the whole school community.
This program is seeking to motivate children to adopt healthy bladder and bowel habits by empowering them through education and knowledge. It is built on the premise that many lifelong attitudes, beliefs and behaviours begin in childhood and that instilling these values at a young age may help avoid issues later in life.
Research shows that bladder and bowel problems can have a negative impact on a child’s self-esteem and quality of life. A child’s perception of their school toilets and access to them can impact on a child’s health and wellbeing, which can also impact on a child’s ability to learn.
