National Water Week
Each October, National Water Week makes a splash right across Australia.
National Water Week is a great time to remind ourselves and teach others that access to clean water is essential to our lives.
This year's theme ‘It’s time to change the world’ has been adapted from the World's Largest Lesson on the UN's Sustainable Development Goals, a campaign to introduce the 17 sustainable development goals to young people all over the world and unite them to take action to meet these goals by 2030.
It’s also a great way to start conversations and encourage people to learn more about the value of water.
Teachers - this is a great activity for the classroom in the lead up to National Water Week.
Primary school students are invited to participate by creating an A3 poster reflecting water related issues which are important to them, their family and the community.
Great Prize packs will be awarded for posters voted first, second and third in each category listed:
- Years 1 - 2
- Years 3 - 4
- Years 5 & 6
Winners from the City West Water region will go on to judging at a state level.
Winning students in each category will be awarded $500 for first prize or $250 for second place.
The student’s school in each category will receive $300 for a winning entry or $150 for second place
