STUDENTS at Arbor Grove Primary School were treated to a special visit by the Water Corporation last week, as part of National Water Week.

Children at the Ellenbrook school learn about the importance of being water wise in our climate, in line with this year’s theme of ‘Water – life – growth’, which encourages sound water practices and investment in water sources.

Water Corporation customer and community group manager Catherine Ferrari said it was important the next generation learn about how precious water is in WA.

“National Water Week is the perfect opportunity for students to learn about where their water comes from and why it is so important to use water wisely,” she said.

“We visit many schools each year, just like Arbor Grove Primary School, with more than 28,000 students educated in 2015-16. Thank you to the students and teachers at Arbor Grove Primary School
for your efforts as part of our Waterwise Schools Program over the past three years – you’re helping to ensure we have a sustainable water future.”

Arbor Grove Primary School’s Waterwise Schools program co-ordinator Kate Lamason said water education was embedded across all year levels as part of the curriculum.

Over the past 21 years, there have been 563 Waterwise Schools recognised across WA.
