National Water Week ‘It’s time to change the world’

­Each year, National Water Week aims to raise awareness and understanding of water challenges across the globe.

This year’s National Water Week runs from 21-27 October, with the theme “It’s time to change the world”.

Westernport Water’s Managing Director Peter Quigley supports the initiative, “National Water Week is a call for everyone in our community to think about how we use water and how we can conserve it for the future.”

In the lead up to National Water Week, primary school students from across Victoria were invited to create a poster displaying water related issues that are important to their local community.

“This year we received 350 poster entries from local primary schools, and the artistic talent of students was fantastic.”

“It was a delight to see the creativity students displayed in their posters. A lot of this year’s entries expressed concern for plastic pollution in our local coastal environment.”

“I congratulate our schools, teachers and students for their wonderful work.”

“Our staff will be attending school assemblies this week to announce poster competition winners and award prizes as part of National Water Week celebrations. Watch this space as we will announce the winners next week” said Mr Quigley.
