Parents are begging for upgrades at Livingstone Primary School in Vermont South.

According to a report by the Herald Sun, children are refusing to go to use the school’s “disgusting, spider-ridden and smelly” toilets and instead are going home with wet pants.

On top of this, there are warning signs up about asbestos content and classrooms have to be arranged when it rains due to leaky roofs and flooding.

Student numbers have almost doubled since 2005, but the school has never had any significant upgrades to keep up with the surge.

Department of Education and Training spokesman Michael Courts said:

“Livingstone Primary School will receive more than $110,000 to carry out maintenance works,” he said.

“This is in addition to what the school already receives for maintenance.”
