Water Day 2021

As part of the Stratford Schools Sustainability Programme, Graduate Planet work with schools to provide exciting educational trips to help the 

Water Day with bell-boating

In the morning the children learn about how much water there is in the world, what a natural water source is and how to support healthy river ecosystems and wildlife. In the afternoon they travel down the river in bell-boats investigating a variety of flora, fauna, river features.

Our objective is to help the next generation:

● Understand that water is one of the most valuable natural resources on the planet.

● Understand how important rivers are for water purification, rainwater storage and wildlife conservation

● Explain what a natural water source is and the causes and effects of water pollution.

● Identify natural wildlife habitats and features along the river Avon.

● Take action to protect and conserve water.

What we do

And how we make a impact.

In September 2021 a total of 333 children and 35 teachers attended the SSSP Water Conservation day in Stratford upon Avon

The day begins with fun lessons in a tent by the river. An ecologist teaches them about the world’s water, where it is, why it’s important, and how the water cycle affects animals, plants and humans.

The children think about how much water humans use, and learn about common water wasters and savers before making their own ‘water promise’.

Inspired by the ‘Stop and think, not down the sink’ campaign, The children learn about the causes and effects of water pollution, and simple things they can do at home to support water cycles.
