The Water Show
The Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources is providing young students with an opportunity to learn more about the water cycle through a fun and educational theatre production.
Splash Theatre Company’s The Water Show explores the social, cultural, scientific and environmental significance of water and will be performed to primary students up to 40 times in 2012 at no cost to schools.
The show is a fun way for students to learn about how valuable water is for South Australia – the driest state in the driest inhabited continent on earth.
Presented in a highly physical and comedic style, The Water Show presents an overview of the role of water in our society as well as introducing concepts such as Archimedes’ principle of buoyancy, hydrological processes and the water treatment process.
Adelaide performances of The Water Show will be held at the SA Water Learning Centre during Term 2, Week 2 (Monday 30 April – Friday 4 May) and Term 4, Week 3 (Monday 22 October – Friday 26 October).
Regional shows will be performed at in-school sessions in the Murray and Mallee region during Term 2, Week 3 (Monday 7 May – Friday 11 May) and the Limestone Coast region during National Water Week in Term 4, Week 2 (Monday 15 October – Friday 19 October).

Flow Cup Instructional Video
The flow cup provided in your school’s WaterWise Communities kit can be used as an auditing tool for your class to determine the rate of water flow from taps and determine whether the taps are water efficient. If the taps are not water efficient you might consider installing a flow restrictor or aerator which are available from most hardware stores and plumbing suppliers.
