St Mar­garet Col­lege Sen­glea Pri­mary cel­e­brated the in­stal­la­tion of wa­ter tanks as part of the school’s wa­ter har­vest­ing project. The project was fi­nanced by the HSBC Wa­ter Pro­gramme – Catch the Drop.

The in­au­gu­ra­tion cer­e­mony was led by Par­lia­men­tary Sec­re­tary for Re­search, In­no­va­tion, Youth and Sport Chris Agius and HSBC Malta CEO An­drew Beane both of whom also un­veiled a com­mem­o­ra­tive plaque.

Ear­lier this year, Sen­glea stu­dents re­ceived 120 mag­nets with mes­sages of wa­ter con­ser­va­tion on them, while an­other 120 wa­ter-tap aer­a­tors were dis­trib­uted to the fam­i­lies of the stu­dents un­der the HSBC pro­gramme.
