Water Corporation General Manager Customer and Community Group, Catherine Ferrari, thanked the school for its dedication to the program.

“In our drying climate it’s important the next generation is aware of how precious water is and Lake Monger Primary School has been sharing this message for 10 years,” Ms Ferrari 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 Lake Monger Primary School for your dedication to the program.”

Lake Monger Primary School Principal, Diane Tomlinson, said learning about the value of water and how to conserve it was incredibly important to the school community.
 

“Since becoming a Waterwise School 10 years ago, awareness within the school on the value of water has been raised,” Ms Tomlinson said.

“Students have become more aware of where water comes from here in Perth and why it is important to reduce water use.”
