EAST Vic­to­ria Park Ed­u­ca­tion Sup­port Cen­tre stu­dents learnt about our most pre­cious re­source – wa­ter – as part of its Na­tional Wa­ter Week cel­e­bra­tions.

Na­tional Wa­ter Week ran from Oc­to­ber 16 and fin­ished on Mon­day; this year’s theme was to en­cour­age sound wa­ter prac­tices.

Wa­ter Cor­po­ra­tion cus­tomer and com­mu­nity group gen­eral man­ager Cather­ine Fer­rari con­grat­u­lated the school for shar­ing the water­wise mes­sage.

“It’s vi­tal the next gen­er­a­tion learn about the im­por­tance of sav­ing wa­ter and Na­tional Wa­ter Week is the per­fect op­por­tu­nity to high­light this,” she said.

“Na­tional Wa­ter Week is held in Oc­to­ber each year and pro­vides schools with a great op­por­tu­nity to pro­mote water­wise mes­sages and hold wa­ter themed ac­tiv­i­ties.
