The importance of hygiene in schools

Good hygiene is vital to create a safe and dynamic learning environment. With high human interaction activities taking place daily, the risks of cross contamination and spreading of germs or bacteria will be higher. 

Especially if there are individuals whom are unwell or a flu bug spreading around, embracing optimal hygiene is critical.

Learn more about the key risk areas in education facilities to help protect the well-being of teachers and students.



"School is such an important environment for our children as it's the place that much of our learnt behaviour takes root. In an ideal world, parents will take the lead on teaching children about the importance of hygiene, however where this isn't possible, schools can ensure that such practice life skills are learnt and reinforced."

- Emma Kenny, Media Psychologist and Registered Psychological Therapist
