Regional students Just Add Water

Around 800 students from eight different Eyre Peninsula schools recently enjoyed the thrills and spills of SA Water's spectacular stage show Just Add Water at the Middleback Arts Centre

Billed as the world's wettest game show, the fast-paced performance had audiences ducking and diving for cover, as the show's hosts 'Rip Tide' and 'Sue Nami' splashed through 60 minutes of water wonders.

The water-logged fun uses a TV quiz show format where students test their knowledge by answering quick-fire questions, and complete daring challenges to explore water's physical properties in real-life situations.

Students from Fisk Street Primary, Long Street Primary, Hincks Avenue Primary, Whyalla Town Primary, Nicolson Avenue Primary, The Whyalla Special Education Centre and Samaritan College attended.

Whyalla also welcomed students from Wudinna Area School, who made the trip to come and see the show.

Fisk Street Teacher Greg Dunn said Just Add Water was as education as it was dazzling.

“The students get a better understanding of water, water purification and the environment which are all very important for them to learn about,” he said.

“The visuals are fantastic because they show the kids that the things we teach in school are also studied outside in the real world. It makes it more realistic for them. “It was such a new experience for them, they took a heck of a lot on board from it.”
