World Water Day

World Water Day - Friday 22nd March

Today, we marked World Water Day by wearing something blue, and we also held a special school worship to find out more about why we need to have a World Water Day and the aims of the Sustainable Development Goal 6. (Clean Water and Sanitation for everybody by 2030). We also discussed other ways the children would like to help.

  • Save water: Take shorter showers and don’t let the tap run when brushing my teeth, doing dishes and preparing food
  • Stop polluting: Don’t put food waste, oils, medicines and chemicals down my toilet or drains
  • Eat local: Buy local, seasonal food and look for products made with less water
  • Be curious: Find out where my water comes from and how it is shared, and visit a treatment plant to see how my waste is managed
  • Protect nature: Plant a tree or create a rain garden – use natural solutions to reduce the risk of flooding and store water
  • Build pressure: Write to my elected representatives about budgets for improving water at home and abroad
  • Clean up: Take part in clean-ups of my local rivers, lakes, wetlands or beaches

During worship, Year 2 performed a dance called 'Oceans' for the whole school to enjoy. They had been practising for a few weeks, and it was lovely to see the final performance today!
