School principal, Catherine O'Neill has confirmed to the IrishIndependentthat she had sent a memo home with students asking if the parents would occasionally send toilet paper and give it to the class teacher who would hand it out as needed.
The memo, as reported by the Independent, dated October 1 reads,
Dear parent. From time to time we will request your daughter to bring in a toilet roll to her class teacher. These rolls will be specifically for your daughter's class and will be dispensed by the class teacher. We would also request that your daughter has tissues in her sack at all times. This is due to cutbacks. we are endeavouring to trim down expenses and ensure we use our grants towards the educational needs of your child.
O'Neill said, "We thought with this request that it wouldn't be a burden on families. We're just hoping to spend money on education,"
