Mandurah Baptist College Primary School was recognised as Western Australia’s 569th Waterwise School at a special assembly today.  

As part of Water Corporation’s Waterwise Schools Program, Mandurah Baptist College teachers have been educating students about the need to value, protect and conserve our water sources.

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

“Congratulations to Mandurah Baptist College for becoming a Waterwise School today,” Ms Ferrari said.

“In our drying climate it is important the next generation is aware how precious water is, and the Waterwise Schools Program has been fostering that awareness in Western Australia for the past two decades.

“An important part of ensuring our future water supply is by reducing the amount of water we all use and the Waterwise Schools Program gives students the knowledge they need to save water.”

Mandurah Baptist College Primary School Waterwise Coordinator, Jacqui Burrage, said the school hopes students will realise that they can make a significant and positive difference in the world with courage, confidence and a growth mindset.

“The students rose to the challenge of developing their critical and creative skills whilst helping Mandurah Baptist College Primary become a Waterwise school, which really made a difference,” Mrs Burrage said.

Now in its 22nd year, the Waterwise Schools Program takes a long-term approach to water education and behavioural change, and complements the curriculum across all major learning areas.
