The award ceremony for Switzerland's best water explorers took place on Thursday, 18 June 2020 in a somewhat special and different format: by videoconference after the visit earlier in the week of the programme manager. 3 finalist teams and 2 represented cantons: Neuchâtel and Valais.
The 8H classes from Dombresson (Neuchâtel), 7H classes from Saillon (Valais) and 8H classes from Grône (Valais) have been selected for the quality and dynamism of their exploration. At the end of this ceremony, the class of Grône was elected best Swiss team for this special school year...
In the school year 2019-2020, 63 Swiss classes have enrolled in the programme (3 from Fribourg, 19 from Geneva, 5 from the Jura, 12 from Neuchâtel, 9 from Valais, 14 from Vaud and 1 from Basel). This represents 1244 students.
Each of the teams presented their water exploration and highlights: in addition to the water rap that rained heavily, the events that touched the students the most were the fundraising challenge and the challenge of bartering to save water. Two of the three teams continued their exploration on the water during containment. In this way, families were also involved and sensitized.
BRAVO to these 3 teams of explorers and their teachers!
