Perenjori Primary School celebrated 10 years enrolled 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. Perenjori Primary School celebrates a decade of waterwise education

 

Water Corporation Mid-West Regional Manager, Stephen Greeve, thanked the school for sharing the waterwise message.

 

“The name Perenjori is derived from the Aboriginal word ‘Perangery’, meaning water hole – so it is fitting Perenjori Primary School has shown dedication to educating the next generation about water,” Mr Greeve said.

 

“Teachers at Perenjori Primary School have been educating students about the importance of saving water since 2007 and in our drying climate, it is important students  continue to learn about the value of water. 

 

“Thank you to students and teachers at Perenjori Primary School for your dedication to the Waterwise Schools Program.”

 

Perenjori Primary School Waterwise School Coordinator, Claire Morrison, said as a result of the program students had become aware of the importance of water and ways they can conserve water both at school and at home.

 

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