Corindi school gets waterwise
CORINDI Public School is the latest Northern Beaches school to join Coffs Harbour Water's Waterwise Schools Program.
Waterwise Schools aims to educate not only students, but also their families and wider school communities, about the need to value, protect and conserve precious water resources.
It is hoped that, through Waterwise Schools, students will adopt environmentally responsible behaviour towards the use of water so that now, and in the future, they become advocates and spokespeople for sustainable water usage habits.
Waterwise Schools works with students to develop their knowledge of water issues to enable them to make informed decisions in the future about vital water matters.
To claim Waterwise status, a school must complete six steps including holding an in-service on the program for staff, developing an action plan, addressing five points of criteria, compiling a submission, organising the school's recognition program and maintaining the school's commitment to the program.
Other waterwise Northern Beaches schools include Sandy Beach Public School and St Francis Xavier School in Woolgoolga.
