Research shows that maintaining hydration levels is crucial in order for both children and adults to perform at their optimum throughout the day. As a result, we decided at St Andrew’s VA Primary School to invest in water coolers with AquAid in October 2006. Our unique relationship with AquAid has also given our school the opportunity to help those less fortunate than ourselves. With every bottle of water that we drink we are contributing 40p to Christian Aid and The Africa Trust.
Our decision to also install a mains fed machine means that a further £20 per annum is going to The Africa Trust. Through our contributions to The Africa Trust an ‘Elephant Pump’ has been installed in Africa on our behalf. This pump will bring much needed clean, fresh drinking water and improve the quality of life of those who will have access to our well. Our school’s name will be displayed proudly on our well and we look forward to adding some photos and letters of thanks from the villages to our site in the near future.
