Council awards water wise prizes
MORE than 500 primary school students in the region had some colouring-in fun and learnt about conserving water at the same time.
Yesterday the winners of a Bundaberg Regional Council colouring-in competition to mark National Water Week gathered to receive their prizes, which included Moncrieff movie tickets and a CD.
Council water and wastewater infrastructure spokesman Cr Alan Bush said it was an important week.
“This is the perfect opportunity to raise awareness of the importance of water and water use,” he said.
The first-prize winners were: (Prep to Year 2) Hayley Ashcroft, of Childers State School; (Years 3-5) Sarah Weir, of Walkervale State School; and (Years 6-7) Jade Whillans, of Kalkie State School.
