This year's National Water Week will be held on 15-21 October 2017.
The 2017 theme is ‘Water – the Heart of our Culture’.
This theme encourages young people to explore how water shapes our everyday lives through recreational activities, the natural world and our community values.
2016 Multi-agency Primary School Event - "National Water Week on Show"
The 2016 “National Water Week on Show” event for primary school children was again a great success with over 440 students attending the event.
The annual National Water Week poster competition was again keenly contested in our service area. Primary School students are asked to create a poster reflecting water related issues which are important and relevant to them and their local area.
In 2016 we received a total of 691 posters. The quality of entries in 2016 was outstanding and some fabulous entries were received. It was evident a great deal of thought went into the theme the student would use and many of the entries showed fabulous art skills; this was particularly evident in the higher primary age groups.
Entries are judged on:
The poster was to be be A3 in size and any art material can be used including paint, textas, coloured pencils or collage materials. One poster per student can be entered with the official entry form completed.
