Students at West Leeming Primary School will learn about our most precious resource – water – as part of its National Water Week celebrations next week. Students at Weest Leeming Primary School celebrate National Water Week

Teachers at the school have been educating students about the importance of saving water since 2007, 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,” 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 West Leeming Primary School for your dedication to our Waterwise Schools Program and for taking part in National Water Week.”

West Leeming Primary School’s Waterwise Schools’ Program Coordinator, Sue Varvell, said water education at the school was embedded across all year levels as part of the curriculum.   

“Our school is dedicated to water conservation and sustainability and we are proud of it,” Ms Varvell said.

“The school is also planning to perform a water audit and share water saving tips over the PA throughout the week. At the end of October we’ll continue to share waterwise tips at the school’s annual fete! ”
