'Water' Lot of Fun Rolls into Killean Primary School

15 March 2010 8:45

NI Water's Education Officer, Anna Marshall, and the fun-filled H20 character get ready to board the Waterbus as it gears up for the new school year.
Northern Ireland Water’s (NI Water) educational programme, H2O and the Wonderful World of Water, made a splash at Killean Primary School on Monday 15th March with the organisation’s travelling classroom – the double-decker Waterbus.

During the visit the children are introduced to H20, a water drop figure and mascot for the programme to help them learn about water and to understand the importance of water conservation. The children will also learn what can and can’t be put down the toilet through a ‘bag it and bin it’ activity, what NI Water does to clean the water and how sewage is treated.

NI Water’s Environmental Education Manager, Jane Jackson said:

‘‘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 water is essential for good health and how they can help to conserve this precious resource.

“We are delighted with the feedback we have received from schools who have participated in our education 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 the Northern Ireland Primary Curriculum - the ‘World Around Us’.

A teachers’ learning pack, with further classroom activities is available to download from www.niwater.com/education.
