Mr Drippy checks into school
MR DRIPPY returned to Mossman State School last week to follow up on his Tap into Water program.
After the successful water bottle design last year, Mr Drippy paid a visit to check up on the Deadly Art poster design competition.
Students had the opportunity to design their own poster, with pictures and health messages about the benefits of water.
After an enthusiastic response and many fantastic entries submitted, winning designs were selected, printed and laminated for display around the school and will continue to promote the benefits of drinking water.
Dental therapist Tania Paterson said the kids did a great job and Mr Drippy was very proud of them.
‘‘ The Mossman School community has embraced this project and done a fantastic job in making water the drink of choice, as well as increasing both the amount and frequency of water consumption,’’ she said.
‘‘The kids have really come on board and are very knowledgeable now on the reasons why drinking water rather than choosing other sorts of drinks that might be high in sugar and acids is important. They are all especially enthusiastic about the Sip Some Water song.’’
Major design winners were Tyrone Wallace, Krystal Secker, and Caleb Ross, with merit awards going to Natayah Bowen and Jye Hauser.
