For Immediate Release: June 14, 2019

At the June Stratford Town Council Meeting 12 grade five students were recognized from their artwork which was submitted for the Town’s annual water school calendar art contest.

The Town of Stratford and Stratford Area Watershed Improvement Group are proud to have recently completed the 11th year of water school, also known as “Water’s Cool”, which is an annual water conservation/watershed education program for grade five students. Through water school, the Town and watershed group are instilling a sense of environmental responsibility in the students who attend, and the youth leave eager to change how they use water and treat the natural world around them. They also bring the information learned back to their families and friends and hopefully make changes as a result of sharing their new knowledge.

To date approximately 2,800 students have participated in the program which included expanding the program this year by adding an additional week which provided for a further partnership with the City of Charlottetown and their area students.

The artwork featured in the calendar, which is produced by the Town of Stratford and Stratford Area Watershed Improvement Group, shows a different student’s illustration for each month of the upcoming school year. It is distributed to all of the students at Glen Stewart Primary and Stratford Elementary schools as well as the participating classes from Donagh School.
