Student art paints a positive water future
To celebrate National Water Week, students created posters featuring water related issues that are important to them. Local area poster competition winners announced.
To celebrate National Water Week, Victorian primary school students were asked to create a poster displaying water related issues that are important to them.
“This year’s theme is “Innovation for future generations”. The imagination and level of knowledge displayed through student’s poster art is very exciting,” said Westernport Water Managing Director Peter Quigley.
“It was great to see student awareness of local and global water issues and their fantastic ideas on what our water future might look like.
“Subjects included renewable energy, recycling, sustainability, climate change, recreation, health as well as drought, but the underlying message is that we all have a part to play in looking after our water resources,” said Mr Quigley.
Category winners that represented Westernport Water in state judging this year were:
- Grade 5 & 6 – Nikki Williams – San Remo PS
- Grade 3 & 4 – Sienna Hughes – Bass Valley PS
- Grade 1 & 2 – Matilda Walton – San Remo PS
- Prep – Cecilia Leyes – San Remo PS
“I congratulate our schools, teachers and students for their wonderful work, and remind the community that we’re here to help,” said Mr Quigley.
