As part of our ongoing initiative to promote water conservation among school children, we are currently promoting our new Waterwatch Challenge, aimed at Key Stage Two pupils.
Following a lesson on water conservation at school, the idea is that the pupils will head for home and spread the water conservation message to all members of the family whilst carrying out a worthwhile homework project in the form of a water audit.
Whilst we appreciate this idea is far from new we are hoping that the resources we provide will make this an easy and enjoyable task for both teacher and pupils.
Each child will be provided with a water wallet which includes:
- a booklet on water conservation
- tile stickers
- a challenge chart to record water usage
- a flushometer to track how many times the toilet gets flushed
Introducing the challenge to your class
The water conservation lesson at school will be run by one of Wessex Water’s education advisers who will then leave you with all the information you require to run the challenge.
