RAINWATER HARVESTING SCHOOL PROJECTS
Throughout the last year, the Energy and Water Agency through the LIFE-IP RBMP-MALTA Project supported ten schools in Malta and Gozo to undertake initiatives for the promotion of rainwater harvesting and other water conservation practices. The schools supported by this initiative were: Immaculate Conception, Tarxien; San Gwann Primary School, Savio College, San Gorg Preca College Hamrun Secondary, San Gorg Preca College Valletta Primary, Gozo College Sannat Primary, St Nicholas College Mtarfa Primary, Maria Regina College Wardija, Santa Margerita Isla Primary, and St Benedict College Safi Primary.
The selected projects have involved students, through the Eco-Schools initiative, in the development of the project proposal hence enabling the students to better appreciate the importance of water conservation. Furthermore, the students will also be involved in monitoring project implementation and its impact on water use in the school.
