SCHOOL pupils are getting lessons in a new setting - at a sewage works.
Youngsters from Nields Junior School, Slaithwaite, will experience an audio-visual extravaganza when they go to Yorkshire Water's education centre at Headingley water treatment works, Leeds.
The centre offers the students a chance to learn interactively through seven water-related zones, based on the hugely popular Yorkshire Water educational CD-Rom, Baddies in the Works.
The children, aged nine and 10, will be taken on a tour of the water treatment works where they will see first hand the methods used by the company to provide water for the area.
A tour leader will guide the children around the site, as they listen to a commentary through headsets.
The Headingley education centre has been developed with the help of school teachers to cover the core elements of the national curriculum key stage two, including numeracy, literacy, geography and science.
Anne Reed, Yorkshire Water's community affairs adviser, said: "The Headingley education centre is great for learning about one of life's most precious resources.
"The centre is a brilliant place for school pupils of all ages to learn about all aspects of water."
Yorkshire Water has two further education centres, one in Loftsome Bridge, near Selby, and one in Ewden, near Sheffield.
