Water Machines in Schools – Case Studies and Guidance

Resource: PDF

Since the beginning of 2009 the Health Education Trust has been working closely with Oasis to develop a chilled water unit suitable for the education market with the aim of increasing the amount of water consumed by pupils and staff within schools.

During this process two secondaries schools have been involved in piloting the use of these machines. Over the past year the schools have established active pupil led water action groups to consult with the whole school on the implementation and usage of the water units and drinking bottles. These groups have developed innovative approaches to increase the consumption of water amongst pupils and engage senior management and staff within the process.

This document includes case studies from the schools:

Kirk Hallam Community Technology and Sports College, Derbyshire

Newland’s School for Girls, Hull
