This was an interesting challenge.  We really enjoyed playing the game which helped us physically see how we are doing with our water saving and attitudes.  

Some of us would have preferred to draw our selfies.  We came up with loads of water saving ideas.  We liked M's best.  He left a clean bucket outside to collect rain water and then used it refill his dog's water bowl and to water the houseplants.

When we completed the survey we found that our attitude to water conservation has improved and, if we keep it up, over the course of the year our pupils and teachers could save 394,566 litres of water!  Not bad for a small rural school.
