A gang of super heroes descended on a Lowestoft primary school to spread an important message.

The super heroes have begun an educational adventure with children from across Suffolk – and they received a helping hand on the way from the Lowestoft school pupils.

Children at Carlton Colville Primary became ‘Super Splash Heroes’ as they helped Essex & Suffolk Water (ESW) to launch a new online educational resource that helps people of all ages to learn about water.

By taking part in a series of fun, interactive workshop activities, the Carlton Colville youngsters helped launch the new educational material and information, which can be accessed through ESW’s website and focuses on water in the environment, water efficiency and water for health.

The ‘Super Splash Heroes’ online content offers an educational resource for teachers and schools, as well as supporting fun learning for children and families with activities, worksheets, videos and information about the broad range of careers available within the water industry.

Pupils from key stage one through to school leavers can find out more about the industry and the part it plays in the water cycle, interacting with nature to protect one of Earth’s most important natural resources.

Sally Hughes, deputy headteacher at Carlton Colville Primary, said: “The Super Splash Heroes visit was a fun way to deliver an important message and the pupils really enjoyed the activities. The resources that have been made available provide a wide range of information and activities that can be used to help pupils learn all about the water cycle and its importance to everyday life, so it was great to be a part of the launch.”

Sarah Pinkerton, head of external communications at ESW, which has an office base in Lowestoft, said: “This online educational resource offers something for everyone, helping people to learn about the water cycle and the many ways that water helps life to thrive on Earth.

“We would recommend teachers and parents check out the website and find out how they can make this a fun and interesting part of education for all.”
