Congratulations to primary school students across our region who are our winners and runners-up in this year’s National Water Week poster competition!
This year’s theme, ‘Caring for water in your backyard”, featured heavily in the regional entries for the primary school poster competition. The quality of posters entered this year made it very difficult for the judges.
East Gippsland Water’s Executive Manager Customers, Mathew Scott, said, “National Water Week (18 – 22 October) reminds us that our water is precious, and we use it in many different ways.
“The poster competition gives students a great opportunity to learn and develop their understanding of the importance of water and using it efficiently, Mr Scott said”
The winners, who particularly impressed the judges with their vibrant and imaginative posters are: Isabelle Cowie (Prep – Bairnsdale Primary School 754), Felix Blandford (Grade 1/2 – Bairnsdale Primary School 754); Matilda Lane (Grade 3/4 – Tambo Upper Primary School), Kailee Helmers (Grade 5/6 – Bairnsdale Primary School 754) and Victor Greenwood (Special Needs – Marlo Primary School).
