Award available for sustainable schools

Westernport Water is encouraging local schools to register for the opportunity to win $1,000 as part of the savewater! online education program for environmental sustainability.

The Environmental Sustainability Education program encompasses Years 6-10, offering a broad range of topics which includes a series of worksheets for each subject. Students can learn how to save water, lower their carbon emissions, or study the effects of climate change. Each series also comes with a Teacher’s Guide to help plan lessons and suggest classroom activities.
By registering, schools are placed into the running and one randomly selected participant will received a $1,000 cash prize. The program was created by savewater! as a way to encourage students to take into account how their actions affect the environment.
“This is a great opportunity for local schools to increase their students’ awareness of the importance of conservation and provide the chance to earn funding towards their projects,” said Murray Jackson, Managing Director of Westernport Water.
“Water conservation is now a part of everyone’s life and education is the best tool in equipping our future generations in using our resources wisely and responsibly.”
