Narrabri West wins a free tank!

This week we were excited to learn that we have won a 27,000 litre Bluescope Steel Tank, pump and associated equipment as part of the Australia wide ‘Tank a Day Challenge’ competition. This was announced on the ‘Today’ show on Tuesday. The competition aims to help schools with their water conservation programs, whilst teaching students about the water cycle and the importance of conserving water. We entered last term by providing details on our water conservation efforts and our students completing an online water saving quiz. We will use the tank to capture the runoff from our new Primary shelter, which we can then use to assist the watering of our lawns and gardens.
