At Hunter Water we know that saving water starts with education and awareness. That's why we're committed to helping educate our community, especially students, about the many aspects of water supply, treatment and conservation. Our education resources cater for Preschool to Year 8 and support science, geography and history components of the school curriculum.
More recently we have looked for opportunities to align our education program with Hunter Water’s key strategic initiatives. This new direction challenges students to tackle the real world problem of water scarcity and come up with solutions to help our community save water through inquiry based learning. Our goal is to engage in a collaborative learning journey where we support the curiosity, creativity and innovation of students for this very real issue. To find out more about our new Learning with Schools program, or to give us feedback on how we can support your existing water education programs, please contact our Education Coordinator.
Hunter Water has also partnered with Hunter Local Land Services to inspire kids to care for our catchments. More information can be found on the School Engagement Project page.
Hunter Water has produced a range of resources suitable for use in preschool, infants, primary and high school. All of these resources can be downloaded from this page.
The resources are designed to support the educational programs offered to schools in the Hunter Water area of operation however they can be used independent of these program.
