Stu­dents splash wa­ter mes­sage

Cockburn Gazette - - STREET WATCH -

AS part of Na­tional Wa­ter Week, Coolbellup Com­mu­nity School cel­e­brated a decade of in­volve­ment in the Wa­ter Cor­po­ra­tion’s Water­wise Schools Pro­gram.

Deputy prin­ci­pal Caro­line Churchill said the school aimed to raise aware­ness of wa­ter con­ser­va­tion and man­age­ment.

“The Water­wise Schools Pro­gram en­gages the stu­dents into a greater un­der­stand­ing of wa­ter in the en­vi­ron­ment and how wa­ter is vi­tal to a sus­tain­able fu­ture,” Mrs Churchill said.

Coolbellup is show­cas­ing its ded­i­ca­tion to the Water­wise pro­gram with class­room ac­tiv­i­ties and a dis­play of wa­ter-themed books in the li­brary through­out Term 4.

At a spe­cial assem­bly last week Cor­po­ra­tion gen­eral man­ager cus­tomer and com­mu­nity group Cather­ine Fer­rari thanked the school for shar­ing the water­wise mes­sage.

Now in its 22nd year, there are 570 schools en­rolled in the Water­wise Schools Pro­gram across WA.
