Carrick PSEveryone’s favourite travelling classroom, the infamous Waterbus, recently paid a visit to Carrick Primary School in Burren. During the visit, the children were introduced to H20, a water drop figure and mascot for the programme to help them learn about water and to understand the importance of water conservation.
  The children also learnt what can and can’t be put down the toilet through a ‘bag it and bin it’ activity, what NI Water does to clean the water and how sewage is treated.

Go For It March 2017NI Water’s Environmental Education Officer, Pat McCauley, said, ‘‘NI Water places great importance on educating young people in the vital role water plays in our lives. The Waterbus is a fun and interactive way for children to learn about the water cycle, why water is essential for good health and how they can help to conserve this precious resource.
  “The Waterbus is very popular with schools and we’re already taking bookings into 2018. We are delighted with the reputation it has come to enjoy as this goes to prove that the work we do on the bus is delivering what matters to today’s pupils and our future generation of water users.” The programme is aimed at Key Stage 2 and designed to complement a key element of the Northern Ireland Primary Curriculum – the ‘World Around Us’.
