Primary 7 have been learning how some people in foreign countries are not as fortunate as us and cannot just turn on a tap to get water. They have to walk miles every day and when they arrive unfortunately the water they get is not clean. Primary 7 have been learning how Lola travels 12, 874 m every day to get water. Primary 7 tried to empathise with Lala by carrying a bucket of water for 2 minutes. They had lots of fun but realise the hard work Lola encounters every day. In total Primary 7 travelled 6, 951m which is approximately half the distance travelled by Lala.
