A groundswell of support rippled through Singapore World Water Day
Every year, we dedicate the month of March to Singapore World Water Day, to pledge our national commitment to water conservation.
This year, more than 460 partners from schools, retailers, and corporates joined in our movement. A big thank you to all our partners who supported #GoBlue4SG! Check out how our partners spread the word for the water cause in their own special ways!
Discover Water Wednesdays
Through workshops, storytelling sessions, quizzes and more, some of our partners from schools and corporate organisations have committed to educating students and co-workers about the importance of water sustenance—one Wednesday at a time.
“Encouraged by the good response received from last year’s partnership with PUB, our girls have designed a “Treasure Hunt" for visitors to the NEWater Visitors Centre this year. We are grateful for this partnership, as our girls get to live out the school's mission of being good stewards of knowledge to lead in causes that serve the common good.”
Ms. Chew Ing Lim, Principal of Tanjong Katong Girls’ School (TKGS)
“We conducted talks by teachers and students to educate the students on the importance of water conservation in Singapore and other countries. Information about the history of our Water Supply, Water Sustainability and Conservation was also displayed to raise awareness on the current state of water around the world. The session ended with our students pledging to help save water.”
Mr. Edwin Chew, Lead Teacher (Geography) of Regent Secondary School
“Great World is proud to be part of Singapore World Water Day to raise awareness on water conservation. Aside from rewarding shoppers with additional Great Rewards points when they are dressed in blue outfits for Water Wednesdays, the mall will run a shoppers’ Treasure Hunt for water-saving tips and display educational panels for learning fun. Great World strives to do our part in making a difference.”
Ms. Eugenie Yap, Senior General Manager, Great World
“The cup design competition that we organised aim to raise awareness amongst our students about water conservation—how a simple action like using a toothbrush cup can make a big impact on the amount of water saved in the long run. Imagine how much water we can save if everybody starts making simple changes in their daily habits!”
Ms. Louise Choo, Teacher-in-charge, Woodgrove Primary School
“Water is precious, and it's a gift for mankind! Water Wednesdays is a reminder that we must do our part to take good care of it, save and use it wisely.”
Ms. Reyes, Teacher of Good Shepherd Convent Kindergarten
