Programme Background

WSD has been promoting water conservation to the public through various channels. The younger generation in particular is our main target. In order to cultivate the sense of water conservation among students, we have been organising different activities including School Roadshow and School Water Audits, etc. in primary schools.

To strengthen the collaboration with schools, we compile a teaching kit for the "Cherish Water Campus" Integrated Education Programme - Primary School (IEP) with the integration of theory into practice. We aim to develop a culture of water conservation in primary schools and cultivate water saving habits among youngsters through interesting and interactive activities.

The stakeholders of this programme are whom involve in primary school education. Since water conservation topics covered in the IEP are parts of the environmental protection education, schools may adopt suitable materials from the kit in General Studies lessons, Class periods, Life Education lessons, morning assemblies, activity weeks or any other occasions.

Programme Objectives

Programme Content

IEP is divided into three phases (see the table below) and organised in every school year. To facilitate an effective implementation of IEP, the WSD has refined the teaching kit and provided schools a Teaching Resources DVD* in the school year 2019/20. The “Cherish Water Campus” Teacher’s Portal for Primary School (“Teacher’s Portal”) has also been launched in August 2020 to provide teachers an easier access to information on water resources and IEP.
