Learning More About Sustainability With DEWA – At The Aquila School, we strive to inspire our pupils to be global citizens and support a sustainable future. We welcomed Mr. Ali Amjad and Ms. Ayesha Hilton, two greatly experienced members of DEWA to The Aquila School to spark awareness about water conservation and environmental issues currently faced in the UAE and around the world. Our pupils learnt about the various campaigns DEWA have initiated and is currently run throughout the UAE to promote water and energy conservation.
‘It was a great opportunity to invite DEWA to The Aquila School, to create awareness about being more sustainable with our water usage. Our pupils were taken back by the information they learned and all pledged to do better and save water.” – Mr. Howsen, Principal.
Our pupils learnt about the ways they can save energy and water on a day-to-day basis, which included; reducing water usage when brushing your teeth, taking shorter showers and the efficiency of LED lighting. They were surprised to learn how much water an average person uses in a day.
