Fresh drinking water is provided around school and children are encouraged to keep hydrated. Educational studies show that students remember more and stay focused longer when they are hydrated. In fact, studies have found that that drinking water can improve brain function by 15 percent. From September 2019, parents will need to provide a refillable water bottle for each child in school. Children will be responsible for the cleanliness of their own water bottle, and these should be washed at home each night before returning to school the next day.
