Lessons on water through art

World Water Day falls tomorrow

The Delegation of the European Union in Sri Lanka and the Maldives in collaboration with the Sewa Lanka Foundation, Mannar Office and the Zonal Education Department of Madhu will hold several events to mark World Water Day tomorrow. These events for schoolchildren in the Mannar district, include a drawing competition and an environmental awareness programme, on the importance of conserving water.

The project will target about 1800 students from 11 schools in the Manthai West DS Division, most of whom are children displaced by the conflict who have now been resettled.

Earlier this month, schoolchildren from grades 6-13 (age group 11-18 years) took part in an art competition under the theme of water conservation. The best 250 drawings will be displayed tomorrow at an exhibition at the Adampan M.M.V.

Additionally, some 300 students will attend an environmental awareness programme which will include interactive lectures on conservation, biodiversity and the importance of water resources and conservation.

A special awards ceremony will also be held with Counsellor, Delegation of the European Union to Sri Lanka and the Maldives Guy Platton as the chief guest.

This project is funded by the European Union.
