The girls, who chanted and marched excitedly through the streets, congregated at the Heritage Square for a rally after the march. The rally featured performances by students of the school who entertained persons at the Square with fun renditions of poems and songs, all about conserving water.

President of the GHS Young Leaders Chante Melville, making remarks at the rally, said that the sub theme ‘Blue Gold-Treasuring Earth’s Reservoirs’ was chosen to educate persons on how precious and essential water is to life. Melville added that the human person may be the only organism that does not appreciate the value of water as it is usually wasted by persons. Reservoirs must be kept clean, Melville stated, as this prevents the spread of diseases such as cholera and malaria.

Some of the tips given by the GHS Young Leaders to conserve water included turning off the tap when brushing teeth, running the washing machine and dishwasher only when they are full to save up to 1000 gallons of water a month and also reusing water used to wash fruits to water plants.

Also encouraging the girls to save water was Headmistress Andrea Bowman who also commended the girls on their march and rally. The rally also featured the appearance of the GHS young leader’s mascot ‘Drip Drop’, a dance and quizzes and giveaways. The girls were also entertained by Soca Artiste Bomani.
