They learnt about children across the world not having access to clean water and how this affects their lives. Children at Arunside researched the work of Water Aid and how they could help this charity.

Challenges were set using rainwater, recycling water for our allotment, looking at good hygiene and how countries around the developing world can set up practical and sustainable water, sanitation and hygiene projects.

Facts and statistics were shared with the children.

Mrs. Slight said, “It’s very easy for the children to take clean water for granted, so our activities were a fantastic way to teach them about the millions of people around the world who are not lucky enough to have this vital resource at the turn of a tap.”
