THE Water Explorer school programme continues as schools showcase their water saving efforts on the international platform.

Recently, six schools had a chance to showcase their efforts to save water in front of an expert water-saving panel. Among those six schools, two local schools proudly represented the South Coast. Port Shepstone Junior Primary School and Ebomvini Primary School were part of the top six.

“Ebomvini Primary was selected as the top team for 2018. The expert panel were impressed with the way the whole school participated and how their actions were embedded together with the fact that they had involved their parents and community wherever possible,” said programme host Bridget Ringdahl.

“While all teams were winners, the day culminated in awarding Ebomvini Primary with the Water Explorer Tap trophy, R8 000 toward their eco-projects and representing South Africa at the International Water Explorer event in London at the end of October. The other teams were all awarded R4 000 each,” said Ringdahl.

The Water Explorer programme focuses on raising awareness in the form of exciting learning programmes through which children can be educated. Many pupils go the extra mile and implement the water saving strategies they learn at home and also get creative with new and exciting inventions.
