MANDURAH Baptist College’s primary school was the winner of the City of Mandurah’s $5000 scholarship following this year’s Perth and Peel Regional Kids Teaching Kids Conference in Mandurah and Baldivis.

Six students and two teachers will be heading to the Melbourne Water Kids Teaching Kids Conference this week to share their winning project.

The school won the City’s scholarship for its creativity in presenting its project in a live game show style, complete with host and a panel of students answering questions.

Kids Teaching Kids is a unique national education program to inspire young people to develop practical solutions to the challenges facing the environment.

The Melbourne conference aims to build on the existing and successful Kids Teaching Kids program to deliver a comprehensive education peer-teaching program.

It focuses on increasing water education in schools and the greater community across Melbourne and Victoria and provides young people with the chance to decide how they will be heard, now and into the future.
