Lincoln school films toilet roll challenge to flush away lockdown blues

Other schools have also filmed uplifting lockdown videos

Toilet roll shortages are becoming all too common during the coronavirus outbreak, but staff from a Lincoln school were at hand to ‘give a sheet’ and keep people’s spirits up during lockdown.

Staff at Ermine Primary Academy filmed their ‘Toilet Roll Challenge 2020’, which starts with someone in the bathroom realising they have no toilet roll.

His fellow colleagues were ready to lend a helping hand.

One staff member dressed up as a unicorn and one channelled Harry Potter, while another did some impressive kick-ups as the toilet roll passed through various hands to get to the man in need.

Fosse Way Academy in North Hykeham also tried to boost morale for children and parents during this difficult time as staff sang along to the tune of ‘I’ll Be There’ by Jess Glynne.

The school said on Twitter: “We thought we would do something to show you that, no matter what is happening, we will always be there for you.”

Staff at Witham St. Hughs Academy also recently created a video to keep pupils, parents and families smiling to the tune of McFly’s track ‘Love Is On The Radio’. Saint Lawrence CE Primary School in Skellingthorpe produced a ‘love from the staff’ video last week.
