A student council felt that they needed to do something about the appearance of the bathrooms in their school. They decided to have a competition between various groups in the school to clean up their school bathrooms. The idea was presented and each club volunteered to pay for the refurbishing of a bathroom. One week a month, a bathroom would be shut down for the work to be done. The groups cleaned up the bathrooms by painting, putting up wall paper and borders, sponge painting, putting up new mirrors and soap dispensers, hanging fake plants from the ceiling, getting new toilet seats and doors, etc. In some bathrooms, a magazine rack was put in to hold donated magazines.
