Italian schools asks pupils to bring their own toilet paper

A CASH-strapped Italian school has called on its pupils to provide their own lavatory paper, apparently due to a lack of public funding.

Scuola Primaria Casati in Milan made the request in a letter sent to parents. "We've run out of toilet paper. So that this great friendship can continue, we have to bring one packet of four rolls of toilet paper [each]," it read.

"We are informed that school funds are low and parents should provide paper, cups and even toilet paper."

It also emerged recently that Rafael Garcia Valino, a state primary school, near Madrid in Spain, asked its pupils each to provide six rolls of lavatory paper.

Cittadinanzattiva, a consumer group, found that nearly half of the schools it surveyed in Italy did not have any soap, and a further 37 per cent were lacking lavatory paper due to funding cuts.
