MANDURAH Baptist College Primary School has achieved waterwise status.

As part of Water Corporation’s Waterwise Schools Program, Mandurah Baptist College teachers have been educating students about the need to value, protect and conserve our water sources.

Water Corporation customer and community group general manager Catherine Ferrari said in WA’s drying climate, it was important the next generation was aware how precious water is.

“The Waterwise Schools Program has been fostering that awareness in WA for the past two decades,” she said.

“An important part of ensuring our future water supply is by reducing the amount of water we all use and the Waterwise Schools Program gives students the knowledge they need to save water.”

Mandurah Baptist College Primary School Waterwise co-ordinator Jacqui Burrage said the school hoped students would realise that they can make a significant and positive difference in the world with courage, confidence and a growth mindset.

“The students rose to the challenge of developing their critical and creative skills while helping Mandurah Baptist College Primary become a Waterwise school, which really made a difference,” she said.

Now in its 22nd year, the Waterwise Schools Program takes a long-term approach to water education and behavioural change and complements the curriculum across all major learning areas.
