Primary schools in Sussex are being given the chance to receive a free World of Water talk after which pupils have a chance to become WOW agents.

South East Water has a revised education programme which teaches youngsters about saving water and is now offering the talk to schools.

During the session carried out by South East Water employees, pupils learn about where their water comes from and how it’s treated, the importance of water for their health and how making small changes in the home and garden can save a significant amount of water.

A new education booklet includes questions, stickers, tasks, competitions and the Every Drop Counts Pledge which gives pupils the chance to become a WOW Agent.

Lee Dance, head of water resources and environmental, said, “By combining topics such as science, nature and the environment, planning, engineering and citizenship, we are able to get children excited about water and understanding the importance of saving water and being water efficient.”

The free talks are aimed at eight to 11 year olds and for information visit
