National Water Week Online Learning Festival

Access to clean water is hugely important to our daily lives. We all need to protect our water environments and resources and use water wisely.

 

Our inaugural online learning festival, will feature a new theme each day and bring together a fantastic collection of online events, activities and on-demand videos to make National Water Week a week of education, experiments, enjoyment and learning.

 

How to get involved

 

All activities are free of charge and available for use throughout National Water Week.

 

You can use the videos and activities on any day and in any way.  Activities available include:

 

  • Eaton Gorge Theatre Company (26 mins) performing their popular show online which promises to be a cartoon-like, vibrant and energetic experience with plenty of humour and a touch of silliness. Audiences will learn what happens if the wrong things are put down the sink, in the toilet or in the drains.
  • Read a poem ‘From Cloud to Puddle and Back Again’ (Prep to Grade 2)
  • Complete a water cycle word find and colouring in sheet (Grade 3 & 4)
  • Make a Rain Gauge (Grade 5 & 6)

National Water Week Poster Competition

Every third week of October, National Water Week makes a splash across Australia, inspiring individuals, communities and organisations to work together to build awareness around the value of water.

Access to clean water is hugely important to every aspect of our lives, and we must do our best to protect our water environments and resources, and use water wisely.

The theme for 2020 is Reimagining our Water Future. As our population grows, this will put more stress on our water resources, so how can we reimagine the way we use and reuse water to ensure there’s enough of it in the future? How can we rethink our current water practices to help conserve valuable water resources? What can we do as individuals and as communities to inspire a more sustainable water future?

To celebrate National Water Week (19-25 October 2020) and build awareness around the value of water, Lower Murray Water and the Australian Water Association are calling for local primary school students to enter the annual poster competition.

 

Students are encouraged to create a poster – digital or paper – reflecting what the world would look like to them and their local area, inspired by this year’s theme.

 

There are great prize packs to be won and local winners will be nominated for state cash prizes.
