Our Water Festival, Bethlehem Shimelis reports..
Posted by Scottsville School, South Africa on 30 July 2015

Water day for me, wasn’t only a fun experience but also a very educational one. I was one of the performers at the water festival so I had learned a lot about saving water and about how the majority of the people in South Africa do not have access to the Umgeni water supply that we do. Unlike what I thought before I learned about the critical water supply, South Africa can be described a sub desert region with a low water supply. I also learned that we should save water diligently. We were advised to do things such as showering instead of bathing and not to throw rubbish on the streets. Before I had learned not to, I had recklessly thrown rubbish on the floor, not thinking a bit about how it would affect the water supply. Now, after looking back on my actions, I realised that I was very foolish and I am now relieved that I had learned about this this early, so that I would not of done more damage than I had already done to the eco system. I would like to thank Mrs Cawood and Mr Nedft for organising this initiative and am now glad that I have this information in mind so that I can do all I can to spread awareness about the major problem. Sustaining the water supply is everyones' responsibility! Thank you for reading
