Why Worry About Water?


Year 2 students visited Hinze Dam as part of the current science unit, ‘Why Worry about Water?’. It was wonderful to see the dam so full and to measure its height from sea level by using the ‘giant ruler’. The children were able to see how the water was cared for at the dam, learned about the 'natural water cycle' and discovered how dam water gets to homes via the ‘urban water cycle’. As a valuable 'take-home', our students learnt how they could play their part by looking after precious drinking water.
