After winning the Greenschools water conservtion quiz, Ms Mill’s 2nd year French class was treated to a trip to the Old Cork Water Works. They had a great time learning about how Corks complex systems for delivering clean drinking water to thousands of houses was developed over hundreds of years. As part of the trip the class took part in their “Walk for Water”. The students took it in turns to carry 5 litres of water along and across the River Lee to stand in solidarity with those who have to walk miles for clean water and to remind us how valuable a comodity it is. We get plenty of rain in Ireland but to turn on our taps to find clean drinking water is quite a luxury and requires a huge amount of time, energy and pipe maintainance, so remember to value and conserve it.
