Save Water for a better tomorrow!
Sustainable Development Goal 6 (SDG 6): water and sanitation for all by 2030 was once again part of Lawrentian students.
St. Lawrence High School and Junior College celebrated World Water Day. It was a great chance to teach students about the importance of water. Often, we take water for granted so it’s crucial to teach them from a young age how to appreciate the clean and safe water we get to consume daily.
The students discussed ways of saving water in their daily life – for example by taking a short 2 minute shower, using a bucket and mug instead of a running shower, talking to their family and neighbourhood about the different ways to start saving water in every activity and more.
The Grade 1 students requested their mothers to wash vegetables in bowls instead of directly under a tap and also to save water for watering plants. This was a small step taken to be more mindful of our own water usage. The students also spoke about how to wisely conserve freshwater from rainfall so that it can be of use all year round.
The students of Grade 2, 3 and 4 made posters and enjoyed their role of responsibility towards Mother Earth
