Water is the third theme of the Green-Schools programme. The Water theme looks at developing awareness around water conservation and how to effectively manage this important resource in our schools and at home.
Window Farms

Emily Robyn-Archer came in to do a water workshop with the boys.

She spoke with them about the importance of water conservation.

Together with the class, Emily built a "Window Farm." 

  • Turn off the taps when washing your teeth – you can save six litres of water

  • Take a shower not a bath – don’t use power showers as a 10 minute shower uses as much water as three baths!

  • Fill the kettle for the right amount – you can save energy as well.

  • Use water from a water butt to water your plants

  • Never use a hose pipe in your garden

  • Always fix leaking taps

  • Use your dishwasher and washing machine only when they are full, thus saving energy as well!
