UN World Water Day. Wednesday 22 March 2017.

World Water Day is celebrated across the globe every year on 22 March. It’s all about appreciating water, learning more about it and reminding us that water is an important resource for us all, especially in summer.


A record 800 students were involved from 19 schools from across Hamilton, Waikato District and Waipa District this year.  The winner of Smart Water's UN World Water Day is St Peter's Catholic Primary School.  Congratulation to Ms McCreery’s Y7 class who will be touring their local water treatment plant on Lake Karapiro soon.


Thank you to all the teachers who participated!  It was amazing to see all the creative messages your students came up with!
