Winthrop Primary School celebrated 10 years participating in Water Corporation’s Waterwise Schools Program at a special assembly.
Over the last decade, teachers at the school have been educating students about the need to value, protect and conserve water resources.
Water Corporation General Manager Customer and Community Group, Catherine Ferrari, 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 Winthrop 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 Winthrop Primary School for your dedication to the program.”
Winthrop Primary School’s Waterwise Coordinator, Katy Moriarty, said as a result of the program the students have become aware of the value of water in the environment.
“Our Science program has a strong focus on water, and students have been learning about water sources, treatment and supply, as well as the need to conserve this precious resource,” Mrs Moriarty 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.
