    Nearly $1 million has been allocated by the State Government to upgrade toilet facilities in six Government schools.

    Education Minister Colin Barnett said today the upgrades would be done this financial year.

    Mr Barnett said the schools to get upgraded toilet facilities were the Exmouth District High School, Greenmount Primary School, Jarrahdale Primary School, Lathlain Primary School, North Mandurah Primary School and Roebourne Primary School.

    District education offices used several criteria to establish which schools were considered a priority for toilet upgrades.

    The Minister said these included health issues such as cracks in concrete or tiles, insufficient toilet facilities to meet the number of students and the distance from other school facilities.
