Salmon Gums Primary School celebrated 10 years enrolled in Water Corporation’s Waterwise Schools Program at a special assembly on Monday.

 

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.

 

“Salmon Gums Primary School has been sharing this message for 10 years, making sure the water users of the future become water savers of the future.

 

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

 

Salmon Gums Primary School Principal, Krystal Wiggins, said the school aimed to raise an awareness of water conservation and management.

 

“The students of Salmon Gums Primary School now understand the importance of conserving water and taking measures at home, as well as at school, to ensure that water is used wisely,” Ms Wiggins said.

 

“The program has helped them to develop this knowledge and improve their own practices to ensure they themselves are water wise.”
