The Global Team of the Week Goes to Bridge Junior School!
Posted on 4 April 2016

Congratulations to Bridge Junior School from the UK for winning our Global School of the Week prize!

After completing a number of Water Explorer challenges, they were able to hold their very own Water Festival. They spent a day planning their festival where some wonderful games, posters and interactive challenges were designed.

On the day of the Water Festival, approximately 10 classes equating to 300 students were able to view the stalls which had been set up. The team were very dedicated and passionate about promoting the impotance of water and this showed through their education of issues such as water usage in clothing production, the taste of bottled water vs. tap water and global scarcity of water.

Congratulations to Bridge Junior School and enjoy your water bottles!
