Students at Brighton Catholic Primary School will learn about our most precious resource – water – as part of its National Water Week celebrations next week. Brighton Catholic Primary School prepares to celebrate National Water Week

Teachers at the school have been educating students about the importance of saving water since 2009, through 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 Brighton Catholic Primary School for your dedication to our Waterwise Schools Program and for taking part in National Water Week.”

Brighton Catholic Primary School’s Waterwise Schools’ Program Coordinator, Katherine Simon, said water education at the school was embedded across all year levels as part of the curriculum.   

“We are holding a special waterwise themed assembly with the water themed songs and a water saving tips presentation..” Mrs Simon said.
