It’s Drinking Water Week (May 1st – 7th) and Collingwood was introduced as a Blue W community on Monday. Blue W is a non-profit organization that aims to provide Canadians free access to tap water by eliminating the invisible barriers often associated with obtaining water while away from home.
Municipal buildings and private businesses in Collingwood that wish to participate will be provided with a Blue W decal to display in their window. This decal indicates that these businesses welcome the community to fill their re-usable water bottles in their establishment without pressure to make a purchase.
To further promote Drinking Water Week Collingwood Utility Services, along with the generous support of industry sponsors, will be presenting all public elementary school students with a stainless steel water bottle embossed with their school logo to encourage drinking Collingwood’s safe, clean tap water. Student representatives from Admiral Collingwood, Cameron, Connaught, Mountain View and St. Mary’s were on hand on Monday morning with their new water bottles to celebrate Drinking Water Week.
Attached is a copy of the Teacher Resource Kit that was provided to elementary schools in our area. It’s a great resource with lots of interesting information and some work sheets that you can print off and have fun with your kids learning about water.
