Owls class have been learning about the importance of good sanitation. Diarrhoea kills more children than HIV/AIDS, malaria and measles combined. Almost 1 billion lack access to safe drinking water. More than 2.3 billion people lack access to safe sanitation.
The children in Owls made their own ‘Tippy – Taps’. Before they began their builds, the children discussed why they would be needed. They discussed that in areas where water is not readily available, that it is really important to conserve as much water as possible. Additionally, the need for good sanitation is really important. Figures tell us that incidences of diarrhoea can be reduced by 44% just by washing your hands with soap.
