Students at Bunbury Catholic College will learn about our most precious resource – water – as part of its National Water Week celebrations this week. Students from Bunbury Catholic College Mercy Campus celebrate National Water Week

Teachers at the school have been educating students about the importance of saving water since 2013, through Water Corporation’s Waterwise Schools Program.

Water Corporation South West Regional Manager, John Janssen, 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,” Mr Janssen 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 Bunbury Catholic College for your dedication to our Waterwise Schools Program and for taking part in National Water Week.”
Bunbury Catholic College’s Waterwise Schools’ program coordinator, Kelli Schmitt, said water education was an important part of the curriculum.
