National Water Week

During National Water Week, Australians are encouraged to 'Protect, Conserve and Get Involved' in water-related activities and celebrations around the country.

National Water Week logoDesigned to help the community to understand and take action to protect and conserve our precious water resources and habitats, National Water Week runs throughout the third week of October each year.

Some ideas for celebrating National Water Week at schools include:

  • A dress-up day at school (with a water theme) or a blue dress-up day (collect gold coin donations and donate to a water charity). 
  • Clean up a river, stream or dam close to your school by removing all the litter.
  • Tree planting near your local wetland or catchment area.
  • Choose a day to celebrate being healthy and promote the importance of drinking water and making healthy food choices for good health.
  • Have a local library display.
  • Research topics related to water for class, create a bulletin board on water-related stories or pictures.
  • Audit water use at your school - look for leaking taps and create a plan to prevent water wastage. Look into the Schools Water Efficiency Program.
  • Download some educational resources for classroom activities (Prep - Year 10) from the Water. Learn it. Live it. program.
