Fixing up our schools
The education system in the United Kingdom has never been something to gloat about, perhaps the universities yes, but primary school education has taken a rather large nosedive in the last couple of years in all areas but mainly in the infrastructure. Classrooms are over crowded, there’s not enough room for children to play outside and the facilities are atrotious.
One thing that is clear, is that primary schools need to ensure they have modern, clean and useable school drinking fountains. If children do not have access to clean drinking water at all times, there is a serious lack of duty of care that lies with the school and its decision makers. Children need up to eight glasses of water a day to keep hydrated and alert. This is especially important for their schooling years as they are still developing and learning.
It is vital schools install an adequate amount of drinking water fountains on the school grounds so that every child has easy access to drinking water throughout the day. Children should also be educated on the health benefits of water and be encouraged to drink from the water fountain instead of buying softdrinks and other sugary drinks.
