National Water Week, 2012

This week is National Water Week in Australia.

National Water Week aims to raise public awareness and improve understanding of water issues in Australia.

The theme for this year’s National Water Week is “Valuing Our Water”.

There is a logo for National Water Week that makes us think about never taking our water supply for granted.

The three important words are PROTECT, CONSERVE AND GET INVOLVED.

National Water Week Posters on PhotoPeach

We conducted our own ‘National Water Week’ poster competition in MLY.

The judges decided that the winning entries belong to:

Courtney, Bridie, Serena

Congratulations on excellent posters that persuade everyone to ‘value our water’.

The Water Cycle Song

This term our Integrated Studies unit is called ‘Turning on the Waterworks’.

One of our enquiry questions is: Where does our water supply come from?

We will investigate this important question over the next few weeks.

This week we will begin at the beginning: ‘THE WATER CYCLE’

Clever and talented teachers from around the world have made up songs and raps for their students.

We can use our blog to vote for our favourite teaching vid for The Water Cycle.


Can you make up a song to explain The Water Cycle?

Barwon Water will be a valuable site for us to visit.

National Water Week will be celebrated next week. We are encouraged to ‘protect, conserve and get involved’ in appreciating our water supply. The poster competition is an annual event for Australian schools.
