BOYARE Primary School in Mirrabooka celebrated its 10-year milestone as a waterwise school on May 17.

Teachers have taught the Water Corporation’s Waterwise Schools Program for the last decade, which focused on educating students on the need to value, protect and conserve water resources.

Principal Glenn Murray said being a waterwise school was in line with the Western Australian Curriculum Cross-curriculum priority of sustainability.

“Our students are now much aware of the need to conserve water and the simple ways you can save water,” he said.

Water Corporation customer and community group general manager Catherine Ferrari said it was vital for teachers to continue to educate students about the value of water.

“In our drying climate it’s important the next generation are aware of how precious water is and Boyare Primary School has been sharing this message for 10 years,” she said.
