Water explorers is a fantastic global programme that helps raise awareness of water conservation in schools. The comprehensive resources are child friendly and engaging and the children love completing challenges and seeing their points add up as they do so. As a teacher all the resources are provided for you which makes the programme very easy to implement in the classroom and the Water Explorers team are always there to offer help and advice. My class have gained so much from participating in this programme aside from a deeper understanding of conservation issues: teamwork, leadership and the confidence to present their work to others are just some of the many benefits I have seen. The programme links well with the Green Schools theme of Water and it has been a very beneficial programme for our school this year. I would highly recommend the Water Explorers programme for other schools!
Sharon Murphy- Teacher – Scoil Bhríde, Cork.
Since our school signed up to the Water Explorer programme, it really has been an education – for all of us. We found ways to reduce our water footprint at school, and pupils have also spread that knowledge far and wide into their homes and the local community. As part of the programme, pupils get to go online and watch their progress. It increases their awareness of this global issue We would really encourage other schools in the area to get involved and to become Water Explorers!

Not only have we found ways to reduce our water footprint at school, but pupils have also spread that knowledge far and wide into their homes and the local community. As part of the programme, pupils get to interact online not only with their peers in schools from other parts of Ireland, but also as far as Bermuda and South Africa. We would really encourage other schools in the area to get involved and to become Water Explorers!
