Teacher Carolyn Waters has managed the school program for the past seven years since initiating teacher Rosemary McGrath retired.

Mrs Waters said the program was a great way to ensure future generations understood how to manage Perth’s dry climate.

About 200 students had graduated with water-saving knowledge since the program began.

‘Every year we do a plan at the beginning in what we want to do to stay Waterwise and a reflection at the end,’ Mrs Waters said.

Year 7 student Tahlia Gadsby (12) said she had learnt a lot from the Waterwise excursions and incursions and she was using her experiences to save water at school and at home.

‘People should turn taps off, check there are no leaks, and make sure they save water,’ Tahlia said.
