World Water Day, 22nd March
The international observance of World Water Day is an initiative that grew out of the 1992 United Nations Conferenceon Environment and Development in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. We shall acknowledge this day in school and we encourage parents to explore and discuss this day’s importance at home to reinforce the focus placed on it in classes. The theme for 2017 is Water and Wastewater.
