West Eyreton School

West Eyreton School are SMART water users in the Waimakariri District 


  • The installation of four large rain tanks allows rain water that runs off two new classrooms to be caught
  • The relationship is understood by the children between the water that is harvested and used through small spray irrigators to help their plants grow
  • A veggie patch allows the children to participate in growing their own food and seeing the process of water use carried out
  • Children are now part of a project that is aimed to teach the students where their water travels to and has an impact elsewhere
