Everyone’s favourite travelling classroom, the infamous Waterbus, recently paid a visit to St. Anne’s Primary School in Dunmurry.
During the visit, the children were introduced toH20, 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 also learnt 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.
With winter coming, the children also learned about the importance of the ‘Beat the Freeze’ message!
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.
“The Waterbus is a fun and interactive 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. The Waterbus is very popular with schools and is booked up until June 2016!
