Identifying a problem - no matter how big or small - and setting about to fix it is a cornerstone of society.
It is also something a group of Evandale students has been working towards for the past year. For them, it was the need for a drink of water while enjoying the skate park.
"We have lots of grade 6 boys come here everyday to skateboard and you would have to either go back home or go down to the shops to get a drink - so this will be a big help I suppose," said Evandale Junior Action Group member Breeanna Farrel, a grade 6 student at Evandale Primary School.
The Evandale Rotary Club's Junior Action Group last month unveiled a new drinking fountain near the school, the culmination of months of planning and fundraising, with help from the Evandale Primary School Student Representative Council.

It all started with the idea of getting more involved in the community and working towards something, Breeanna said. "This is the second year. So we started fundraising for the water fountain last year."
The group was formed in 2018 and quickly set about finding a project. After taking the question to the school body, the drinking fountain was settled on.
"With the last year's group, one of the boys wanted to start something up so we joined. We had a meeting for everyone in the school asking for suggestions," she said.
"Longford has this exact same one and we thought that was pretty good with the dog bowl ... we wanted one that was usable for everyone in Evandale not just the humans.
"It's just a [grade 5 and 6] group. We got lots of donations ... Morven Park gave us money, council did all the digging for us."
Now complete, with the group having raised $3490 for the fountain, they have sights set on a new project: wheelchairs for children in developing countries.
"They cost $200 each so we don't have a target we just want to raise as much as we possibly can," Breeanna said.
The new campaign will be launched in August and include a wheelchair race around Morven Park.
