In 2015 and 2016, Scottish Water and The Scottish Professional Football League (SPFL) Trust teamed up to bring a new education programme to selected Scottish primary schools. 

h20 IrvineThe H2-O programme focused on the relationship between water, hydration and physical activity. It combines a physical and mental workout for pupils which emphasises the importance of staying hydrated and physically active. Each 90-minute session was delivered by professional club community football coaches who are affiliated with the Scottish Professional Football League.

The session is split into two parts and involves a 40-minute interactive classroom based session focusing on ‘The Water Cycle’ and ‘Our Bodies and Water’. Pupils then take part in a 40-minute physical activity session which involves dribbling a football around cones in different ways depending on what water-related word is shouted out.

To deliver the programme in 2015, Scottish Water and the SPFL Trust worked in partnership with three professional clubs: East Fife; Elgin City and Queen of the South. In 2016, we worked with three more professional clubs: Kilmarnock, Morton and Queen’s Park.The programme, which is absolutely free for schools to take part in, reached a total of around 3,000 young people across the 3 clubs’ local areas.

Scottish Water and the SPFL Trust’s H2-O programme was a shortlisted finalist at the Football Business Awards, held at Chelsea FC’s Stamford Bridge stadium in London, under the Best Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) scheme category.

National Poetry Day


In 2013, Scottish Water was involved in National Poetry Day because the 2013 theme was WATER.  

We worked in partnership with Scottish Poetry Library to bring teaching ideas and activities that will make the theme of ‘water’ flow through all school subjects.

Flooding animation

An animation has been developed to show the sustainable, catchment led approach to flooding implemented by the Flood Risk Management (Scotland) Act 2009 (FRM Act).
The three minute animation provides an overview of Scotland’s approach to flood risk management, including how public bodies are working together to deliver Flood Risk Management Strategies and Local Flood Risk Management Plans. Other aspects briefly touched on include land use planning, flood warning, preparing for flooding and natural flood management. The animation has been funded by SEPA.
