West Leeming Primary School celebrated 10 years enrolled in Water Corporation’s Waterwise Schools Program at a special assembly on Friday.

 

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

 

Water Corporation Perth Regional Manager, Garth Walter, 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 West Leeming Primary School has been sharing this message for 10 years,” Mr Walter said.

 

"Students are the water users of the future and with half of Perth drinking water now produced through seawater desalination – it is more vital than ever teachers continue to educate students about the value of water. 

 

“Thank you to students and teachers at West Leeming Primary School for your dedication to the program.”

 

West Leeming Primary School’s Waterwise Coordinator, Sue Varvell, said students at were aware of the value and importance of water and the need to use it wisely. 

 

“Students awareness can be attributed to both the school’s Waterwise Program, which has been in place for 10 years, and reinforcement by the parents,” Mrs Varvell 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.
