'Water'Lot of Fun at Gracehill Primary School
08 February 2010 14:39Northern Ireland Water’s (NI Water) educational programme, H2O and the Wonderful World of Water, is set to make a splash during assembly at Gracehill Primary School on Friday 12 February 2010.
The main topic is water conservation. The children will hear first hand why water is such a precious resource and discover just how water wise they are.
Practical demonstrations are used to explain how water is cleaned and to encourage the children to think about how they can use water more wisely.
Jane Jackson, NI Water’s Environmental Education Manager comments:
'NI Water places great importance on educating young people in the vital role water plays in our lives. H2O is a fun way for children to learn about the water cycle, why clean water is essential for good health and how they can help to conserve this precious resource.
“We are delighted with the positive feedback we have received from schools who have participated in our H20 programme. It’s a fantastic way for us to work within the local community and educate future generations of water users.’
The programme is aimed at Key Stage 2 and designed to complement a key element of Northern Ireland Primary Curriculum – the ‘World Around Us’.
