Students at St Mary’s School Northampton have been learning about our most precious resource – water – as part of its National Water Week celebrations this week. Students from St Marys Primary School in Northampton celebrate National Water Week

Teachers at the school have been educating students about the importance of saving water since 2005, through Water Corporation’s Waterwise Schools Program.

Water Corporation Regional Manager for the Mid West Region, Steve Greeve, congratulated the school for sharing the waterwise message.

 “It’s vital the next generation learn about the importance of saving water,” Mr Greeve 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 St Mary’s School for your dedication to our Waterwise Schools Program and for taking part in National Water Week.” 

St Mary’s Waterwise Schools’ Program Coordinator, Daniela Miotti, said water education at the school was embedded across all year levels as part of the curriculum.  

“National Water Week is a great way of reminding the students of the importance of water conservation,” Ms Miotti said.
