PUPILS at Great Paxton CofE Primary School were feeling flushed as they were challenged to think about the significance of World Toilet Day.

Anglian Water's mobile education centre visited the school to mark the day and to raise awareness about the important role the lavatory plays in our lives.

The manager of the mobile education centre, Neil Halliday, said: "In days of old, before sanitation, epidemics such as the 1853-54 cholera outbreak killed almost 11,000 people living in London. Pupils found out about the importance of sanitation and the crucial role Anglian Water plays in protecting public health."

The activities on the day included designing toilets, taking part in water races to highlight the distances that people in the developing world have to walk to get water, using ultraviolet equipment to see the hidden dangers of germs, and singing various Water Aid songs.
