Saving Water is in Our Hands
A record of 43,000 students from 95 schools are taking part in water rationing exercises in March as part of Singapore World Water Day. This is double the number of participating schools last year.
Kuo Chuan Presbyterian Primary School is one of the 95 schools. On Monday morning, Senior Minister of State for the Environment and Water Resources Dr Amy Khor witnessed the water rationing exercise and interacted with students during their lesson on water rationing.
Even as Singapore World Water Day comes to an end, we have to continue taking collective action in saving water as part of climate action. Climate change can bring more extreme weather such as dry spells and intense rainfall and we must be prepared for water contingencies.
It is important to make water conservation an integral part of our lives, be it in schools, at home or at work. Just making small changes to our daily routine can help save water. Let’s continue to do our part, beyond the month of March!
