Water Corporation Customer and Community General Manager Catherine Ferrari said in our drying climate was important the next generation were aware of how precious water is, and congratulated Westminster Primary and Education Support Centre for leading the way toward a sustainable water future.

 

"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 Westminster for your dedication to the program.”

 

Westminster Primary School’s Principal Chris Flynn said the Waterwise Program was an essential and effective way to get the important message of water conservation across to our students.

 

“This is imperative in Western Australia where water is a scarce, valuable and an essential resource,” Mr Flynn said.

 

The program has also been running at Westminster Education Support Centre and Principal Mrs Kirsten Dunn said the program had provided valuable information and resources to the school community, resulting in a greater awareness of the value of water in our environment.

 

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

 

The Water Corporation encourages all schools to join its Waterwise Schools Program to educate young people on the need to value water.
