Sponsoring schools survey
07 March 2013
Young people in the UK are being asked about the state of toilets in their schools and colleges and their own personal hygiene habits in an online survey - sponsored by hand hygiene specialists TEAL - to mark Global Handwashing Day on October 15th.
Co-ordinated by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), the survey is being promoted to 30,000 schools via an e-newsletter.TEAL is a member of a coalition of private and public sector companies and organisations assembled by staff at the LSHTM to promote hand hygiene in schools through events and activities for Global Handwashing Day.
"We want to find out more about children's hand washing practices in schools and investigate the facilities provided," says Helen Tipper, Global Handwashing Day UK.
"Without the support of TEAL we wouldn't be able to conduct this UK research."For free downloadable teaching resources go to www.kiddiwash.com
