Improving water management was a key point highlighted yesterday by the Mamanuca Environment Society (MES) while hosting a World Water Day celebration at a Nadi private school.
Seventeen students of the TA Learning Centre were part of a programme that included Tee-shirt printing, poster competitions and a programme designed to show effective ways of saving water consumption at home.
The society’s assistant programme manager, Marica Vakacola, said their programme was focused on water conservation and educating students on minimising water wastage in their own homes and surroundings.
“For example, while in the bathroom they can have shorter showers or turning taps off properly,” Ms Vakacola said.
Students were also briefed on alternative water sources they could use at home aside from the supply via taps.
The programme included a poster and colouring competition for the lower classes while the upper classes were given word puzzles, crosswords and practical aspects of the programme, including a Tee-shirt printing exercise.
The society’s holds weekly environment classes for the Martintar-based private school, which was founded by Taito Alfred, and holds a roll of close to 20 students.
World Water Day is marked annually on March 22 and used as a channel to draw attention to the sustainable management of freshwater resources.
