We have a large education program for Primary Schools with the objective of increasing awareness and understanding of our river system, water treatment processes, the water cycle and the wonders of water.
Schools may choose to complete the full teaching program, of four sections in the year groupings of Prep, Grades 1-2, Grades 3-4 and Grades 5-6, or complete one or more of the modules available.
When registering to undertake the full program, class groups are provided with a range of resources for each student and Teachers’ Notes. Some minor resources will need to be supplied by the school. After the full program, each student is considered a “Super Water Saver” and is presented with a Dripster goody bag. In addition to the full program and modules, we have “Dripster’s Super Water Saver Game” that can be borrowed by schools to support the ‘water wise’ message.
Dripster’s Super Water Saver Game
Are you a “Water Wally” or are you “Water Wise”? Play Dripster’s Super Water Saver Game to find out. Game kit includes a game mat (125cm x 75cm), four playing pieces, dice, age appropriate “Water Wally” and “Water Wise” question cards and instructions for play. Students receive a Dripster Activity Booklet and a shower timer after the game. Dripster’s Super Water Saver Game can be used as an addition to one or more modules, or independently.
We have two modules available for each year group, in addition to Dripster’s Super Water Saver Game. All modules come with Teachers’ Notes and a printed worksheet for each student (where appropriate). Class recording sheets and additional resources are included where applicable, with some minor resources needing to be supplied by the school. We suggested a time allowance for completing all parts of the modules. Various activities may take from 5 minutes to 1 hour. More information regarding the breakup of timing can be found in the Teachers’ Notes.
