The project was financed in part by donations from parents who were asked for a suggested $100 tax deductible donation on top of school tuition.

However, the principal of the Cheltenham Girls’ High School in Sydney, spend $19,000 of that money to build herself a luxury bathroom in her office.

Staff members said that there is a three-cubicle staff toilet just six feet away from principal Susan Bridge’s office door.
