Young students of the Qrendi Primary School – St Benedict College proudly stand beneath the new water tanks in their school. Collecting rainwater and reusing it in the school’s facilities is now possible using the three 1,000 litre water tanks which have been funded by HSBC Malta’s Water Programme – Catch the Drop.
During a special assembly featuring water songs and poems, all school students also received a funnel and a plastic bottle to take home and replicate the concept. The school’s water conservation proposal has been selected by the HSBC Water Programme – Catch the Drop as one of the 21winning entries of the last scholastic cycle.
The winning entries for the School Outreach Programme (individual students) and Community Outreach Programme (schools, local councils) will be announced by end of March 2015.
