Nola Marino MHR had the privilege to give recognition to Bunbury Catholic College becoming Western Australia’s latest Waterwise School.

At an assembly this morning Mrs Marino presented certificates to school representatives involved in programs which have promoted Waterwise messages throughout classrooms and their community.

Special things the school has participated in include:

  • the Hot Rock Seed2Tree Program,
  • drip irrigation has been put through the BCC food garden
  • Native garden investigations
  • The Year 10s learn about Salinity and Groundwater and the Integrated Science class learns about water in our world.

Mrs Marino congratulated the students and staff at the College for all of their hard work. In particular, teachers Kelli Schmitt and Annabel Kanakis for their help in coordinating the project.

The School has an active interest in environment protection thanks to its Green Team which has given the students small measures to make which can save energy, recycle and keep their environments clean.

The Water Corporation’s Waterwise Schools Program recognises that young people need to be educated about water issues so that they develop the awareness, knowledge and skills to be able to make sound water management decisions in the future.
