St Andrew’s Catholic Primary School in Clarkson celebrated 10 years enrolled in Water Corporation’s Waterwise Schools Program at a special assembly today.

 Students from St Andrew's Catholic Primary School celebrate a decade as a Waterwise School

As part of the program, teachers at the school have been educating students on the need to value, protect and conserve water resources for a decade.

 

Water Corporation General Manager Customer and Community Group, Catherine Ferrari, thanked the school for sharing the waterwise message.

 

“In our drying climate it’s important the next generation are aware how precious water is and St Andrew’s Catholic Primary School has been sharing this message for 10 years,” Ms Ferrari said.

 

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

 

“Thank you to students and teachers at St Andrew’s Catholic Primary School for your dedication to the program and I look forward to the next decade of waterwise education at the school.”

 

This message was reinforced by St Andrew’s Catholic Primary School’s Waterwise Coordinator, Alison Campbell.

 

“As a result of becoming a Waterwise School in 2006, the students at St Andrew’s Catholic Primary School have increased their awareness on issues related to using water efficiently, the vital need for water to keep our body healthy and the important environmental issue of protecting our water bodies from water contamination,” Ms Campbell said.

 

Now in its 21st year, the Waterwise Schools Program takes a long-term approach to water education and behavioural change, and complements the curriculum across all major learning areas.
