Pingrup Primary School celebrated 10 years enrolled in Water Corporation’s Waterwise Schools Program at a special assembly on Monday, 30 October 2017.


As part of the program, teachers at the school have been educating students on the need to value, protect and conserve water resources for a decade.


Water Corporation Great Southern Regional Manager, 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,” Mr Stewart said.


“Pingrup Primary School has been sharing this message for 10 years, ensuring the water users of the future become water savers of the future.


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


Water Corporation provided students with an interactive lesson about where Pingrup’s water is sourced from before the assembly.


Pingrup senior teacher, Michelle Penney, said students gained insight into their town’s water from the presentation.


“The students were intrigued to discover that the water for Pingrup comes all the way from Harris Dam near Collie, and the routes and processes it takes,” Ms Penney said.


“The presentation was very informative and was at an appropriate level for the kids."
