Water Corporation Regional Manager Great Southern Adrian Stewart thanked the school for sharing the waterwise message.

 

“In our drying climate, it’s important the next generation is aware of how precious water is and Frankland River Primary School has been sharing this message for 10 years,” Mr Stewart said.

 

"Students are the water users of the future so it is vital teachers continue to educate them about the value of water.  Thank you to students and teachers at Frankland River Primary School for your dedication to the program.”

 

Frankland River Primary School’s Waterwise Coordinator Susen Zur said the school’s involvement in the Waterwise Schools program gave their students a greater understanding of the value of water as a resource, and how they could help to conserve it.

 

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