Balingup Primary School celebrated 10 years participating in Water Corporation’s Waterwise Schools Program at a special assembly today. Balingup Primary School celebrates its Waterwise Schools status

 

Over the last decade teachers at the school have been educating students on the need to value, protect and conserve water resources.

 

Water Corporation South West Regional Manager John Janssen thanked the school for sharing the waterwise message.

 

“In our drying climate it’s important the next generation are aware of how precious water is, and Balingup Primary School has been sharing this message for 10 years,” Mr Janssen 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 Balingup Primary School for your dedication to the program.”

 

Balingup Primary School’s Principal, Mrs Emma Bancroft said they were so very proud of the school’s 10 year recognition as a Waterwise School, which has been a joint effort between the teachers, students and the school support staff.

 

“Our gardeners have implemented waterwise gardening strategies to make the most of this precious resource and our teachers have been consistently educating students on how to save water at school and at home,” Mrs Bancroft said.

 

The Waterwise Schools Program takes a long-term approach to water education and behavioural change, and complements the curriculum across all major learning areas.
