Primary School programme


We have been lucky enough to

have WiseWater here for the last few weeks.

It’s a great course

facilitated very well by Elaine and Katie.

It was a great crossover between

SPHE and SESE and a real addition

to things like the green flag as well.

The class really enjoyed it,

multisensory approach, fantastic and

real hands on activities for all the kids.

We hope to have them back for our upcoming sixth class.

Wise Water Wellness has made me think SOOOO much differently about water. I live next to a little beach and now everyday I walk down in the morning with a plastic bag and clean lots of the rubbish up.


6th Class Student

I learned whenever I get mad or angry at someone or something I try to stay in a blue mind, not a red one. To respect water and yourself and others as much as you can.


6th Class Student

Thank you Elaine and Katie for your work with the class.

I was very impressed with how engaged the children were .

I also learnt a lot about water and some of the relaxing activities for supporting wellbeing will continue to be used.

I would definitely recommend your work and I wish you all the best with this worthwhile programme.
