The learners at Raphaeli Waldorf School use buckets under all their taps to catch excess water from paint brush cleaning, hand washing and drinking. This is then used to water their plants and trees and maintenance of the gardens.
The students sing songs that acknowledge drought and the relief of rain and teachers include, during assemblies, stories of the power of water. Class 3’s have just made a compost heap that they are carefully watering. Class 5’s have watched in wonder as their seeds have sprouted from blankets of wet cotton wool. Through all these activities, the children at Raphaeli Waldorf School grow to value this precious resource of water.
Tenikwa congratulates Raphaeli Waldorf School on their water-wise initiatives, especially on this World Water Day in 2018.
