The Grade 1s and 2s were fortunate today to have a visit from Hugh Stephens from Melbourne Water. He spoke about how our water comes down from the mountains into our river ways. The children were fascinated to learn there is a huge drainage pipe under the school oval that takes water all the way to Kestrel Creek. through Westerfolds park and into the Yarra. Hugh answered many of our questions from our Water Inquiry, including "Why is the sea salty?" and "Where do puddles go?" Ask your child what were the answers.
