EDGEWATER Primary School has been recognised for 10 years of saving water.

Over the past decade, teachers have been educating students on the need to value, protect and conserve water resources as part of the Water Corporation’s Waterwise Schools Program.

“Since becoming a Waterwise School, the students are more aware of the importance of water in our everyday life,” principal Julie Tombs said.

Water Corporation customer and community group general manager Catherine Ferrari said students were the “water users of the future” so it was vital teachers continued to educate students about the value of water.

A special assembly was held on December 1 to celebrate the milestone, where Joondalup MLA Emily Hamilton congratulated the school.

“I know the school has made many positive changes over the years to ensure they are saving our precious water resource and students definitely understand the importance of being water wise,” she said.
