Good habits can start early in life so teaching young people how important it is to save precious water in our drying climate is the focus of Water Corporation as they visit Bold Park Community School this week.

The visit coincides with National Water Week, which is held in October each year and aims to build public awareness and understanding around water issues and opportunities for growth and innovation.  

Water Corporation A/ General Manager Customer and Community Group, David Juers, said students at Bold Park Community School would learn about ways they can change their behaviour to conserve our most precious resource.

“It’s vital the next generation are informed about the importance of saving water and National Water Week is the perfect opportunity to highlight this,” Mr Juers said.

“Visits like this form part of our Waterwise Schools Program – last year our team educated more than 24,800 students through incursions and excursions.

“Bold Park Community School joined the Waterwise Schools Program last year and I thank students and teachers for their ongoing efforts to save water.”

Bold Park Community School’s Waterwise Schools’ program coordinator, Ms Ursula Prause, said water education at their school was embedded across all year levels as part of curriculum. 

“National Water week is an opportunity for students to become more aware of how they use water in their daily life, at school and in their play” Ms Prause said.

“Water incursions are a great way of reinforcing the importance of water conservation”.
