Belmont Primary School received a special visit from the Barbados TODAY team to commemorate World Water Day.
And it was clear from early on, that the enthusiastic students have a clear understanding of the importance of the precious commodity, and a deep appreciation that it should not be wasted.
In fact, when Barbados TODAY’s Marketing Manager, David Williams, asked the students about the uses of water, the Infants ‘A’ class mentioned “regulating body temperature, hydration, construction projects and extinguishing fires” as some of the most important.
Class Three students Kirara Hunte and Kevin Quarless proudly displayed their bristle board projects which reflected the theme, Water is Important to Our Bodies.
They shared their perspective through visuals, with Quarless opting to use his artistic skills to demonstrate the impact of rainfall on agriculture and Hunte displaying the numerous sources of water for hydration.
Williams lauded the students for their projects and encouraged them to continue positive practices throughout their childhood and into adulthood to preserve water for many years to come.
Principal Pamela Ifill expressed gratitude to Barbados TODAY for visiting the school and distributing several cases of strawberry flavoured Volvic bottled water which were donated by Massy Distribution.
