Seek a Leak Week

Take action and turn your class into intrepid leak detectives for Seek a Leak Week, running 9 - 15 April!

As part of our Seek a Leak Week, we are encouraging schools to take the time to spot a leak with some activity plans.

Leaks can be extremely wasteful and costly. Did you know that a leaking toilet can result in nearly 3 buckets of wasted water a day!

So get your detective gear on and seek a leak – a great activity for the class!
