The Green Schools Programme(as one of their steps/ flags) also tries to promote the importance of conserving water and promoting the importance of water with our pupils. our school got involved with a charity called Wells for Water this year, a school assembly was held and pictures were shown to the children.  Some of the pupils in our school get their water from a well so would be very aware of the importance of clean water. News recently of counties having to boil water as its not fit to drink has also highlighted the problems we encounter. I think its really important to monitor an conserve our water usage in school. As part of our Action Plan we installed a water harvester to reuse rain water for washing art supplies etc. We also installed push taps that cannot be left on (essential with young kids)..Makes us think about poorer countries and the extreme conditions. We should not take this precious resource for granted.
