Portaloos and Equipment for school fetes and end of year events
Planning a school event: Do you need portable toilets?
School fetes and events are fantastic for creating a sense of community, encouraging connections between students and parents, and raising funds to improve the school. They’re a whole lot of fun as well – when else can you enjoy that homemade coconut ice while your children bounce off their snowcones in the jumping castle?
When it comes to planning a school fete or event, there are a few essentials often not thought about but that help make the event a great success. In your budget, be sure to include portaloo hire, as the strain on the school’s existing toilet blocks could impact your event.
Benefits of hiring portable toilets for school carnivals, events and fetes.
- You can better contain guests to one area.
If you choose to use only your existing school facilities, and the closest onsite toilet block is busy, children may venture to a further toilet block. You can locate portable toilets where you need to.
- Little tummies can only hold so much apple juice before nature calls.
Add to this jumping, running and all the activity of a school carnival, and it is likely families will be making regular toilet trips.
- The clean-up is easier.
Once your event is done, your portable toilet hire company can come in and manage the clean-up.
- Include nappy change room and disability toilets.
Today’s portable toilets have options for disability access and parent rooms, with fold down change tables.
- Less time queuing for toilets, means more time spending.
The goal of a school event is usually to a) have fun, and b) raise money, and lining up for the loo achieves neither! From a financial perspective, while portable toilet hire is an expense, it also keeps those toilet line-ups moving.
What else do school events need?
If your event is during the day, the Townsville midday sun can be a fun-killer. Add marquees and water rehydration stations to your equipment hire list. Not too many schools have bubblers in the middle of the school oval!
If your school event is expecting large crowds, look at hiring temporary fencing or crowd control barriers too. This helps direct event-goers, creates a clear entry point, prevents little ones from wandering too far, and makes your event look even more professional.
