The St. Thomas-Elgin Children's Water Festival presented the RBC staff with a painting
created by the students who attended The Water Festival. Students took an oath to
promise to help protect and conserve our water resources. To do this, they dabbed
the paintbrush on the canvas.
Water Conservation Oath:
I promise to keep my showers less than 5 minutes.
I promise to turn off the water while brushing my teeth.
I promise I will tell a grown-up when I see a dripping tap in my house.
Water Protection Oath:
I promise I will put my recyclable material, like cans and plastic bottles, into
I promise not to use the toilet as a garbage can.
I promise not to throw any of my litter into our lakes, creeks, or streams.
Thank you RBC Blue Water Project for supporting the St. Thomas-Elgin Children's
Water Festival. The Water Festival provides elementary students in grades two through
five with the opportunity to learn about the importance of water, through interactive
activities linked to the Ontario Curriculum. This year over 3,500 students attended
the festival at Pinafore Park in St. Thomas.
