Whizzy's school programs

MidCoast Water Services runs free sessions as both incursions and excursions with schools within our service region. 

We also offer resources, which can be accessed on the Resources for studentsResources for teachers, and Choose Tap at school pages.

 

Whizzy the Waterdrop visits: preschools

Preschool program

Whizzy and friends usually visit preschools across the region each year to celebrate National Water Week during October, but they are also happy to make a special visit throughout the year pending availability.

Whizzy's helper usually reads children a story which looks at things we can do to save water around our homes. Then the fun really starts - Whizzy arrives and has a sing and play with the children, before leaving them with some important tips on how they can be water-savers!

Preschools receive an expression of interest form in term 3 each year for visits during term 4. If you don't receive it, or for visits at other times of the year, contact education@midcoastwater.com.au
