Merici College Green Tip #2- Where Does Your Water Come From?

When you turn on the tap, do you consider where your water comes from? Or goes to afterwards?


Prior to arriving at your tap, water goes through many stages. 

First it is collected through river catchments and makes its way to our dams, which store water before it is transferred to one of our two water treatment plants.

John Nicoletti Book Series 'The Grower'

We are most appreciative of John Nicoletti who has donated a set of books,  'The Grower, The Heartbeat of Australia and The Grower, The Roots of Australia to our school library. The books enable young Austalians to connect with where their food and fibre comes from. As an adolescent John left home with $200 to his name and carved out a great life for himself in agriculture.
