St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School in Waroona celebrated 10 years participating in Water Corporation’s Waterwise Schools Program at a special assembly today.


Over the last decade teachers at the school have been educating students on the need to value, protect and conserve water resources.


Water Corporation Acting South West Regional Manager, Nicky Waite, thanked the school for sharing the waterwise message.


“In our drying climate it’s important the next generation are aware of how precious water is and St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School has been sharing this message for 10 years,” Ms Waite said.


"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 St Joseph’s for your dedication to the program.”


St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School’s Principal, Travis Bienkowski, said the waterwise message was embedded into the school’s teaching and learning program.


“In being a Waterwise School, our students have come to realise how a resource such as water is precious to our community and how important it is to use water wisely,” Mr Bienkowski said.


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