Welsh Water believes in educating our future generations about the environment and has developed a programme of activities for children - Living and Learning with Water

Living and Learning with Water

These activities, designed by educational experts, are linked to the National Curriculum and give primary school children the chance to understand the water cycle and the vital role that water plays in our everyday lives.

Since launching our Education Strategy, tens of thousands of children have been to our education centres – – Cog Moors and Cilfynydd in south Wales, Alwen in north Wales and the Elan Valley in mid Wales. Staffed by full-time seconded teachers or environmental rangers, the centres provide the opportunity to learn about the importance of water and give the children the opportunity to take part in practical activities such as The water cycle, water efficiency, pond-dipping, river studies, as well as many other hands on activities linked to the National Curriculum and outdoor learning. All visits to the centres are FREE OF CHARGE.
