Water Explorer Programme


While working towards gaining a third flag for water ,the Green Schools Committee have been participating in The Water Explorer Programme.

Water Explorer is a fun, inspiring and educational programme that empowers thousands of students across the world to lead joint action on water issues for their schools and communities. We have participated in completing water-based challenges on key water issues.

Collaborating with other students in another school-Santa Sabina,Sutton we decided to hold a Water Day Festival in both schools. We held numerous meetings and came with lots of interesting water based activities. It was decided to invite a local primary school to the event. We had different activities like a photo-booth, crafts, experiments, board games and a jigsaw we created ourselves, dance and a quiz- all with the aim of educating our visiting school and our own first year students about the importance of saving water.

We found the whole experience so rewarding and it helped us develop a range of transferable knowledge and skills. Due to our efforts we have been invited to attend a Water Explorer awards ceremony in May. Check out some of our pictures of the day and remember – “Save Water, Every Drop Counts”.
