Young people will be bowled over by a new interactive workshop launched by Essex Cricket and Essex & Suffolk Water, which teaches them the importance of staying hydrated and avoiding fizzy drinks throughout the day.
The Powered by Water workshop will be delivered to thousands of students over the next year, as part of Essex Cricket’s ongoing programme of activity with schools in the local area.
The first Powered by Water workshops were delivered by Essex Cricket to Year 4 pupils at St Michaels Junior School in Chelmsford on Tuesday 30 January. During the session children took part in a number of interactive games, quizzes and activities whilst learning about the importance of drinking plenty of water throughout the day. The pupils also designed their own posters on the importance of staying hydrated.
John Devall, Water Director for Essex & Suffolk Water said: “We’re really proud to have joined up with Essex Cricket to deliver the Powered by Water programme in local schools. It’s really important that young people learn how important it is to stay hydrated, as it will assist their development, keep them healthy and give them a boost both when playing sport and working hard in the classroom.
