South East Water Know h2ow Awards - Arlington Reservoir
Mrs Hare took a small group of Year 7 and Year 8 students to Arlington Reservoir in East Sussex on Wednesday, 17 January 2018. The purpose of the visit was to begin preparing for the South East Water Know h2ow Awards. This is a programme run by South East Water and involves generating solutions to some real world issues. There are two issues the students have to consider for their project, the first relates to tracking and recording visitor numbers at Arlington Reservoir. The second involves designing an app that will communicate to visitors in one of following areas; Prevent the poop! Safety first (a water safety campaign), or Nurturing nature (a nature trail).
The weather was kind and the group took part in a water challenge, were given a guided tour of the reservoir and also had the opportunity to quiz the staff at South East Water to help with their projects.
Thank you to Mrs Laxton for organising the trip and Mrs Hare for accompanying the students.
