GWMWater has developed a Water Conservation and Water Quality Matrix (184kB) and Wastewater Matrix (167kB) to help teachers in their classroom programs. These two resources fit into Education Department guidelines (VELS). Both matrixes are designed around Gardener's Multiple Intelligences and Bloom's Taxonomy. Each matrix outlines a comprehensive program and is supported by activity sheets, web links and suggested presentations.
National Water Week
We encourage all primary schools in our region to participate in our annual National Water Week Poster Competition. Great prizes are awarded to winning students and their schools.
We have a variety of activity sheets for classroom use. These activity sheets are designed to be fun and educational for primary school aged children.
Year 9 & 10 Water Conference
Each year, Year 9 and 10 students from schools in our region are invited to participate in our annual water conference.
This forum links into VELS and provides students with an opportunity to investigate water use in their local area. The conference is held at the Federation University Australia, Horsham campus.
If you are interested in this conference please get in touch with us.
