During World Water Day, our students made a sculpture at the Jurong Lake out of 11,121 used plastic water bottles to represent the 4,560 litres of water consumed on average by a Singaporean over 30 days.
In recognition our our efforts, we received the certificate from the Singapore Book of Records for the largest plastic water bottle art installation.
Message from PUB: On behalf on the team, we would like to express our heartfelt gratitude for Bukit View Secondary’s management, teachers and students support for Singapore World Water Day 2013 at Jurong Lake. Congrats too on winning the Singapore Book of Records for the amazing plastic water bottle art installation piece!
Check out the rest of the activities here, including performances from our very own Military Band!
Do you know? The PUB estimated that Singapore's water demand could double from 400 million gallons a day now to almost 800 million gallons each day by 2060. PUB aims to have the means to produce at least 80 per cent of Singapore's water demand by 2060 by reclaiming used water and treating sea water. These two national taps currently meet 40 per cent of demand. (extracted from The Sunday Times, 17 March, page 3)
