How and When Did Water School Begin?
What is Water School, Anyway?
“Waters Cool”, a day-long field trip to the Stratford Town Hall, annually introduces hundreds of Grade 5 students from a variety of local schools to water conservation and various aspects of watersheds in an interactive and activity-based environment. Each class attended both presentations, allowing them to learn where their water comes from and how to conserve this precious resource. Some of the topics covered in these classes include (but definitely not limited to!):
The current instructors include SAWIG's Watershed Coordinator (Kaylee Busniuk), Town of Stratford Environmental Sustainability Coordinator (Maddy Crowell), City of Charlottetown Water Coordinator (Alistair Ozon), SAWIG's Project Manager (Lily McLaine), and Ellen's Creek Watershed Coordinator (Emma Doucette). Previous instructors and the creators of WaterSchool are Billy Ramsay and Kelley Farrar.
All of our instructors would like to say thank you to everyone who has supported the development of this project since 2011, and we look forward to seeing you again next spring.
