Lancelin students are waterwise champions

Lancelin Primary School students are learning about the value of water in a drying climate

LANCELIN Primary School students are acutely aware of the need to be water efficient, according to the school’s deputy principal Katie Hosking.

Ms Hosking, said  the Lancelin Eco Warriors were all about sustainability and caring for the environment and promoted all aspects of water protection throughout the school.

For the past decade the school has been educating its students about the importance of protecting and saving water through the Water Corporation’s waterwise schools program.

Water Corporation Mid West regional manager Steve Greeve thanked the school for sharing the waterwise message for the past 10 years.

Mr Greeve said the waterwise schools program provided support for teachers to educate students about the need to value, protect and conserve water sources, and develop water saving habits to last a lifetime.

“Students are the water users of the future, so it is vital teachers continue to educate them about the value of water in our drying climate,’’ he said.

“Congratulations to Lancelin Primary School on your commitment to the program and I look forward to the next decade of waterwise education.”

Mr Greeve said  the waterwise schools program took a long-term approach to water education and behavioural change, and complemented the curriculum across all major learning areas.
