Scottish Water and the Scottish Premier Football League (SPFL) Trust visited Mountfleurie Primary School last week to launch the new H2-O campaign.
The two organisations have teamed up for the education programme, which focuses on the relationship between water, hydration and physical activity. It combines a physical and mental workout for pupils, emphasising the importance of staying hydrated and physically active.
The campaign launched at the Leven school with the support of Gary Naysmith, manager of East Fife FC, who said: “This is a great education programme of real value to young people and I am confident it will be a great success. More than ever, we have to ensure we get the message across that exercise and hydration are essential parts of a healthy lifestyle. Doing it at this level, when young people are at a critical stage in their development, is a great idea.”
Alan Thomson, head of corporate relations, Scottish Water, said: “We are investing in future generations so they understand the value of Scottish drinking water and the vital role drinking water plays in keeping us properly hydrated.” For more, go to www.scottishwater.co.uk/education.
