ARDROSS Park Pri­mary School last week cel­e­brated 10 years of tak­ing part in Wa­ter Cor­po­ra­tion’s Water­wise Schools Pro­gram. Over the past decade, teach­ers have ed­u­cated stu­dents on the need to value, pro­tect and con­serve wa­ter. Stu­dents are in­volved in a sus­tain­abil­ity pro­gram that grows na­tive plants in their school nurs­ery to plant around the school water­wise gar­dens, in ar­eas around Perth and in farm­ing ar­eas of York. School sus­tain­abil­ity co­or­di­na­tor Fiona Schaper said they strived to em­pha­sise the im­por­tance of en­vi­ron­men­tal sus­tain­abil­ity to all stu­dents.
