Talks and visits

Schools

Our ‘Waterwise’ presentation is available to all the primary schools in our supply area. This covers the syllabus for Key Stages 1 and 2 of the National Curriculum.

All school presentations are given by a qualified teacher and are tailored to different age groups. The presentations are very interactive and each child is given a book to take home.  We also provide teaching materials and dedicated websites for primary and secondary school children (see left).

We have also now introduced a module suitable for students at Key Stage 3, during which the students are asked to design a new town from scratch taking particular account of how to supply the town with water. As a subject it is equally suitable for geography, science or PSHE.

We believe that time spent with schools is an excellent way to ensure that future generations use water wisely.

To book a visit to your school, contact David Harrison on 01202 597032 or email us. 

Speakers

Our senior members of staff speak on a wide range of water-related subjects. These include talks on water efficiency, your water supply and WaterAid, a charity which improves access to safe water, hygiene and sanitation in the world's poorest communities.

Although we do not charge for speakers, we do ask for donations to WaterAid if you would normally pay a speaker’s fee.

Should you get a water meter?

Water meters have important benefits for you, for us and for the environment as you can have more control over your water use and leaks are easier to detect.
