Sacred Heart Catholic School celebrated 10 years of educating students about the value of saving water as part of the Waterwise Schools Program at a special assembly today.

 

Water Corporation Goldfields and Agricultural Regional Manager Sharon Broad met with students and teachers at the Goomalling school today and presented a framed Water Corporation 10-year recognition certificate.

 

Ms Broad thanked teachers for championing the waterwise message.

 

“Water Corporation’s Waterwise Schools Program provides support for teachers to educate students on the need to value, protect and conserve water resources, and develop water saving habits that will last a lifetime,” Ms Broad said.

 

"Students are the water users of the future, so it is vital teachers continue to educate students about the value of water in our drying climate.

 

"Sacred Heart Catholic School is to be congratulated for its commitment to the program and I look forward to the next decade of waterwise education at the school.”

 

Sacred Heart Principal, Steve Miranda, said as a result of the Waterwise Schools Program, his students were much more aware of the importance of water conservation and looked at ways they could save water within the school.

 

“Our students are very much more water aware and have looked at ways in which we can conserve water within our school environment,” Mr Miranda said.

 

Water Corporation’s Waterwise Schools Program is now in its 21st year and has recognised 562 schools across metropolitan and regional WA as being waterwise. Further information about the program is available at watercorporation.com.au
