Following a successful 2022 program, SA Water and Makers Empire are pleased to invite primary schools in South Australia to register their interest to join a pioneering water education program for 10 schools in 2023.
Supported by SA Water, the Water Warriors program helps students learn about water as a precious and renewable resource, and explores cultural knowledge of Aboriginal people, water management, and ways to build more excellent, healthier communities.
The 2023 project will start with teacher PD at the end of term 2, with students undertaking the program in Terms 3-4.
10 schools selected for Water Warriors will receive a $5,000 package including:
* Professional learning day – Friday 23rd June, 2023.
** Showcase day – Tuesday 28th November, 2023.
We can accommodate 2-5 teachers per school (more by negotiation) for the professional development days. We can accommodate unlimited classes and students in a school to do the program. We can accommodate 4-6 students per class and an accompanying teacher for the showcase days.
The program has been designed for grades 3-7 students.
Yes, absolutely! If your school is chosen you will receive all of the benefits on top of your existing Makers Empire subscription: your Makers Empire subscription will simply be extended for another year.
Absolutely! We have had many smaller, regional and area schools participate in our programs before. We encourage all interested schools to apply.
Simply fill in this form to submit your school’s expression of interest to take part in this exciting new water education program.
The deadline for expressions of interest is mid June, 2023.
