A good Samaritan has gifted Merewether Heights Public School staff and families with presents difficult - if not impossible - to buy.
A teacher said about 20 rolls were distributed across the two staff car parks and an adjoining cul-de-sac on Friday.
"We don't know who did it," the teacher said.
"It was a wonderful surprise at the end of a difficult week. You could say that staff were quite elated when they discovered the little gift!"
In the midst of enormous upheaval and more recently confusion about government advice regarding closures, schools are still taking the time to keep spirits up.
Waratah West Public teacher Emma McCabe posted a video last week of herself re-imagining The Beatles' classic as All You Need Is Soap.
Warners Bay High issued a warning there had been a "run on homework and we worry that it will run out soon".
"I advise all students to do as much homework as possible while stocks last," it said. "Get in quick, hoarding is encouraged."
