Parents are begging for upgrades at Livingstone Primary School in Melbourne.

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 are 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.

While the school already receives a maintenance budget, Department of Education and Training spokesman Michael Courts said the school is earmarked for an additional $110,000.
