Prep Starter

Our popular is ready to welcome Preps to primary school and introduce them to important water saving messages and to establish lifelong habits of drinking water for health.

A trained educator will provide a 45-minute presentation, at a time that best suits your timetable.

There are two options available:

They will play interactive games and sing songs, and participate in an interactive version of our story about Donna the Water Droplet as she journeys through the different stages of rain.

They will learn simple tools to help them stay healthy, calm and happy, and the importance of drinking water for their health and wellbeing
