MANDURAH Primary School was recognised as a Waterwise School at a special assembly.

With assistance from the Water Corporation’s Waterwise Schools Program, 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 thanked the school for sharing the waterwise message.

“In our drying climate it is important the next generation is aware how precious water is, and the Waterwise Schools Program has been growing that awareness 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 Primary School Waterwise co-ordinator Kirsty Meares said it was great to see students learn about the importance of water in our community.

“The Waterwise Program in our school has educated students, parents and the wider community on the importance of water conservation and encouraged them to participate in the simple ways we can save water in the home and school,” she said.
