To commemorate World Water Day, the Jesuit Education Foundation has organised a multimedia activity for students of all ages:

Water means different things to different people.

In households, schools and workplaces, water can mean health, hygiene, dignity, and productivity.

In cultural, religious, and spiritual places, water can mean a connection with creation, community and oneself.

In natural spaces, water can mean peace, harmony, and preservation.

Today, water is under extreme threat from a growing population, increasing demands of agriculture and industry, and the worsening impacts of climate change.

To reflect on the value of water in our lives and to make our children protagonists and involved in this reflection, we decided to launch a network activity.

Students of all ages are invited to tell us their stories, thoughts, and feelings about water (“I’ll tell you what water is for me”). They are therefore invited to create textual and / or multimedia products (texts, images, videos, audio), which will be collected by each school. Each school will publish their works collected on their website.

 

Please send your work to Ms Roberta Vella by not later than Wednesday 17th March on email: roberta.vella@staloysius.edu.mt

Students will be able to build their stories by answering (either in Italian or English) to the following questions (not only):

  1. What does water mean to me?
  2. Why is water important to you?
  3. What role will water play in the future?
  4. What role does water play in your home and in your school?
  5. What would you change about water in your area?
  6. What do you use the most water for?
  7. How does water affect the food you eat?

A jury made up of representatives of the Jesuit Education Foundation will evaluate the students’ works and select the ones deemed best based on the following criteria:

  1. originality,
  2. content, and 
  3. level of elaboration.

Let us value water properly and safeguard it effectively for everyone!
