18 March 2017 - Coffs Primary Schools WaterWise

Woolgoolga Public School recently celebrated their official recognition as a WaterWise School meaning that every primary school in the Coffs Harbour City Council LGA has now completed the WaterWise Schools program.

The WaterWise Schools program started in our area in 2007, and with the addition of Woolgoolga Public School, brings the number of local primary school students who have participated in the program to over 6,500. The program also operates in neighbouring Clarence Valley Council and Kempsey Shire Council areas, so thousands of students in those areas have also been involved in the WaterWise Schools program.

Now that Woolgoolga Public School has joined the other 25 accredited schools they will receive ongoing support through the refresher program.

“The WaterWise Schools Program has increased student knowledge relating to the source and storage of local water, increased their knowledge of the importance of water in the environment and has resulted in reduced water consumption within the school,” Woolgoolga Public School Principal Paul Clark said.

“What a fantastic achievement to have all our primary school students participate in the WaterWise program. These little people are the future of our community and it’s great to see that they are ready to become stewards of our precious natural resources,” said Coffs Harbour City Council Mayor Denise Knight .
