KARDINYA and Winthrop Primary Schools are both celebrating 10 years of participation in Water Corporation’s Waterwise Schools program.
Over the past decade teachers at the school have been educating students on the need to value, protect and conserve water resources.
Kardinya Primary Waterwise coordinator Jan Duke said as a result of the program students had become more aware of the value of water in the environment.
“Our school also received an award for writing an original song with a water conservation theme for Water Corporation’s first Waterwise song contest,” Mrs Duke said.
Winthrop Primary Waterwise coordinator Katy Moriarty said the school’s science program had a strong focus on water and that students had been learning about water sources, treatment, supply and conservation.
Water Corporation general manager customer and community group Catherine Ferrari thanked the schools for sharing the water wise message.
“In our drying climate it’s important the next generation are aware of how precious water is,” she said.
