Students at Dale Christian School in Armadale have been learning about our most precious resource – water – as part of its National Water Week celebrations this week. Students from Dale Christian School celebrate National Water Week

Teachers at the school have been educating students about the importance of saving water since 2003, 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 Dale Christian School for your dedication to our Waterwise Schools Program and for taking part in National Water Week.”

Dale Christian Primary School’s Waterwise Schools’ Program Coordinator, Gary Mewhor, said water education at the school was embedded across all year levels as part of the curriculum.

“We are holding a blue dress up day during National Water Week, with funds raised to be donated to a water aid charity,” Mr Mewhor said.
