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.
For more information, visit Australian Water Association website.
This years’ theme ‘Water for me, water for all’ encourages us to think about how we can use water wisely and protect water so we have it in the future.
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
Each school submitting entries will go into the draw and one lucky school will win a planted veggie crate from The Little Vegie Patch Co delivered to the school.
Winners from the City West Water region will go on to judging at a state level.
Prizes at the state level include:
- Students: $500 cash for first place in each category and $250 cash for second place.
- School: $300 cash for first place in each category and $150 cash for second place.
