National Water Week Poster Competition
This annual state-wide competition was open to all primary schools. The theme for the 2013 National Water Week was ‘Liveable Communities’ but students could choose any local or global water issue to feature in their work.
Students were asked to create an A3 poster using paint, pencils, photos, felt pens, collage materials or computer graphics.
We were thrilled to welcome representatives from Coliban Water to Monday’s assembly to present our prizes – especially exciting was the news that Thomas Barker (Grade 2) was the regional winner for Grade 1 and 2. Thomas was delighted with his prize which was a box of experiments.

Water Signs
Prep and Grade 1 students have designed signs to go up around the school to remind people to use water responsibly. The first step was a tour around the school as the students recorded the various modes of water use – taps over sinks, toilets, drinking bubblers, garden taps, etc. The students then brainstormed different messages they wanted to convey to the rest of the school and set to work making colourful, eye-catching and informative signs. These signs will be lamenated and put up around the school to remind everyone to save water.

Water Cycle Project
On Monday 26th June 2013, Grade 1/2TB presented their role-play of the Water Cycle at Assembly.
It was an engaging and informative performance that followed the progress of a single drop of water in all its forms as it travelled through the water cycle. Photos of the students involved are included below.
