Water makes the World go around...This is just one interesting fact pupils of Bushvalley Primary School in Stranocum learnt when NI Water’s education team came to visit to teach them all about the water cycle.
NI Water’s educational programme, ‘H2O and the Wonderful World of Water’, taught the children all about the Water Cycle. Children learnt about the value of water, the different forms, and what impact humans have on it. During the visit, the children were introduced to H20, a water drop figure and mascot for the programme. They learnt how rain water is cleaned and sewage is treated keeping the country healthy. They took part in a ‘Bag it and Bin it’ activity to demonstrate what can and can’t be put down the toilet. The children were also introduced to NI Water’s chosen charity – WaterAid. NI Water’s Environmental Education Manager, Jane Jackson said: “NI Water places great importance on educating people in the vital role water plays. H2O is a fun way for children to learn about the water cycle, why water is essential and how they can help to conserve this precious resource. We are delighted with the feedback we have received from schools who have participated. It’s a fantastic way for us to work within the local community and educate future generations of water users.”
