How does drinking water improve learning?
Mental performance is improved by frequent intakes of small amounts of water. When we are thirsty (the first conscious sign of dehydration) mental performance deteriorates by 10%.
Water Smart are highly experienced in providing high quality, low cost drinking water through our easily installed ‘mains fed’ dispensers, that provide an unlimited amount of cool clean fresh filtered water for pupils and staff to enjoy, and can be conveniently positioned around the school.
Water Smart and The Healthy Schools Programme
A number of years ago, children in school, did not have sufficient access to drinking water. When the Healthy Schools Programme was introduced, Water Smart spent a great deal of time liaising with Healthy School Advisors to improve the access to drinking water in schools. Water Smart has, over recent years, provided many schools with water coolers and fountains and now the pupils are drinking water regularly throughout the school day improving concentration levels and reducing headaches and fatigue towards the end of the day.
Water Smart saved a Manchester Junior School over £700 a year by converting their Bottled Water Cooler, in the staff room, to a Mains-fed Cooler. This enabled them to then provide another Mains-fed Cooler to be used by their pupils and still SAVE MONEY.
