St. Joseph’s Going Green!
‘Celebration as a new water conversation system is installed’
One of our fantastic CAST Schools St. Joseph’s in Exmouth has become one of the first schools in the country to have a water conservation system installed. The system harvests rainwater to use to flush the school’s toilets, the project was funded by South West Water’s Watershed Exmouth project tasked to prevent flooding.
The children were able to get involved with the project by designing their own system features including those in the picture opposite, incorporating flowers into the pipe system and also a cloud where the pipes behind. The installation will mean the school can use 50% less tap water and become more economical and environmentally friendly.
