NI Water’s Travelling Classroom Rolls into Damhead Primary School

1 Mins read

Everyone’s favourite travelling classroom, the infamous Waterbus, recently paid a visit to Damhead Primary School near Coleraine.

During the visit, the children were introduced to H20, a water drop figure and mascot for the programme to help them learn about water and to understand the importance of water conservation. The children also learnt what can and can’t be put down the toilet through a ‘bag it and bin it’ activity, what NI Water does to clean the water and how sewage is treated.

NI Water’s Environmental Education Manager, Jane Jackson said:

‘‘NI Water places great importance on educating young people in the vital role water plays in our lives. The Waterbus is a fun and interactive way for children to learn about the water cycle, why water is essential for good health and how they can help to conserve this precious resource.

“The Waterbus is very popular with schools and is booked up until June 2016! We are delighted with the reputation it has come to have as goes to prove that the work we do on it is of value to today’s pupils and our future generation of water users.”

The programme is aimed at Key Stage 2 and designed to complement a key element of the Northern Ireland Primary Curriculum – the ‘World Around Us’.

A teachers’ learning pack, with further classroom activities is available to download from www.niwater.com/education.
