Mr Drippy checks into school

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
