Students at East Victoria Park Education Support Centre have been learning about our most precious resource – water – as part of its National Water Week celebrations.

Teachers at the school have been educating students about the importance of saving water since 2000, through Water Corporation’s Waterwise Schools Program.

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

 “It’s vital the next generation learn about the importance of saving water and National Water Week is the perfect opportunity to highlight this,” Ms Ferrari said.

“National Water Week is held in October each year and provides schools with a great opportunity to promote waterwise messages and hold water themed activities.

“Thank you to the teachers and students at East Victoria Park Education Support Centre for your dedication to our Waterwise Schools Program and for taking part in National Water Week.”

East Victoria Park Primary Education Support Centre Waterwise Schools’ Program Coordinator, Sheena Paterson, said our school is dedicated to water conservation and sustainability.”

“The centre held activities relating to water conservation and recycling during National Water Week,” Ms Paterson said.
