ESPERANCE Senior High School was officially recognised as a Waterwise school on Tuesday September 18.
Water Corporation Waterwise Education Officer Corrinne Rogers presented certificates and a wall plaque to the school in recognition of their efforts.
“Not only are you leaders in promoting Waterwise messages and behaviours at school, you have plans to share your learnings and new found knowledge at home and within the wider community, which will benefit everyone,” Miss Rogers said.
Esperance Senior High School joined the Sustainable School initiative in September last year.
As part of their Sustainable School efforts, Esperance Senior High School has been promoting Waterwise behaviour since February.
Head of Society and Environment Sarah Day said that the Waterwise department of the Water Corporation had been very supportive.
“The school receives free lessons about water conservation and informative resources such as fact sheets, online curriculum lesson plans and DVDs,” Mrs Day said.
Ms Day has been working closely with Society and Environment teacher Lesley Hudson and Geography specialist As Md Diyah on water saving activities in the lead up to National Water Week in October.
