Indigital Schools Winners Announced

28 September 2021

Earthwatch is incredibly proud to announce that two of the schools engaged in our innovative Swarovski Waterschool Program have received prizes in the Indigital Minecraft EducationChallenge. 

Congratulations to Coreen School and Lugarno Public School in NSW for achieving Best Minecraft World Finalist and Runners Up awards respectively! 

The annual Challenge delivered by Indigital, invited students from across Australia to explore the 2021 National NAIDOC theme of Heal Country by building a present-day representation of their local Country, alongside another representation of the same area sometime in the future, and the changes that might occur if we heal and care for Country.

Over 200 teachers and 6500 students across 160 schools registered to participate in this year’s Challenge. Students at Coreen and Lugarno have truly showcased their roles as water stewards of the future. 

Water literacy and peer-teaching are at the heart of the Waterschool program, which aims to address three key United Nations Sustainable Development Goals: quality education, clean water and sanitation, and partnership for the goals. 

The Swarovski Waterschool Australia 2022 Program is open for applications from VIC and NSW schools. Learn more here
