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

 

Over the last decade teachers at the school have been educating students on the need to value, protect and conserve water resources. Applecross Primary School celebrates a decade as a Waterwise School

 

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 of how precious water is and Applecross 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 Applecross for your dedication to the program.”

 

Applecross Primary School’s Waterwise Coordinator, Vanessa Mann said water education was embedded in the school values at Applecross.

 

“Students have been learning how to reduce their water use and are very mindful about conserving our precious water resources,” Mrs Mann said.

 

“For many years our school has enjoyed visits from Water Corporation educators who run hands-on water talks and activities.  This year, as part of National Science Week in August, students will address the challenges of global sustainability and ways we can deliver water, energy, and food for all.”
 

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