Students at Alkimos Primary School will learn about our most precious resource – water – as part of its National Water Week celebrations this week. Alkimos Primary School students celebrate National Water Week 

Teachers at the school have been educating students about the importance of saving water as part of Water Corporation’s Waterwise Schools Program.

Water Corporation General Manager Customer and Community Group, Catherine Ferrari, congratulated the school for sharing the waterwise message.

 “It’s vital the next generation learn about the importance of saving water and National Water Week is the perfect opportunity to highlight this,” Ms Ferrari said.

“National Water Week is held in October each year and provides schools with a great opportunity to promote waterwise messages and hold water themed activities.

“Thank you to the teachers and students at Alkimos Primary School for your dedication to our Waterwise Schools Program and for taking part in National Water Week.”

Alkimos Primary School’s Waterwise Schools’ Program Coordinator, Jemma Bryan, who coordinates the program with Philippa Ramsden, said there were a number of activities planned for National Water Week.

“We are planning on creating a mural that will involve students investigating where water comes from, ways that water can be saved and the ways in which we can use the saved water,” Ms Bryan said.    

“Our early childhood students also use the water collected in buckets when washing their hands to water plants in the Nature Playground.”
