Everyone’s favourite travelling classroom, the infamous Waterbus, recently paid a visit to schools in the Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council area.

The Waterbus visited Carnalridge Primary School in Portrush, Gaelscoil an Chaistil in Ballycastle and Millburn Primary School in Coleraine.

During the visit, the children were 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 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.

The Waterbus programme is aimed at Key Stage 2 and designed to complement a key element of the Northern Ireland Primary Curriculum - the ‘World Around Us’.
