Mindarie Primary School is proud to be a Waterwise School. Our school is a member of the Water Corporation’s Waterwise School Program which focuses on teaching students about water, spreading the waterwise message into our community and celebrating National Water Week. The program helps to educate students about water so that they have the knowledge and skills to make sound water management decisions in the future.
The education program themes are based on the many different ways water impacts our lives. These themes include:
- Water supply
- Water conservation
- Stormwater and waterways
- Water and the natural environment
- Water and health
In Australia, the world’s driest inhabited continent, it is especially important that we conserve our water. As WA continues to experience the effects of a drying climate and our population continues to increase, it is important that everyone participates in water conservation behaviours.
