Local students and community invited to Online Learning Festival

NWW 20-Online Learning Festival - without logo


This year, water corporations from across Victoria will mark National Water Week a little differently by moving the annual celebration online.

The Online Learning Festival runs from 19-25 October and is designed to build awareness around the value of water. Presenting a new theme each day, the festival will bring together a variety of events, activities and videos.

One of the festival highlights will be local author, illustrator and Westernport Water employee Meg Humphries, who will discuss her children’s book “When Water Lost Her Way”. Her book explores the water cycle in a beautifully illustrated story, bringing together the arts and sciences.

Another feature during the week is a performance for kinder and primary aged children by the Eaton Gorge Theatre Company, called “Tapstar Saves Water” which is sure to be a hit.

The most popular part of National Water Week each year is the announcement of the poster competition winners, with great prizes for students and their school available.

All of the fabulous resources and recordings from the festival will be made available to teachers and students to watch from their home or at school.
