School Tour Details (Grade 5)
Educators of grade 5 students and your class are invited to a free full day tour that offers a first-hand look at how water gets from the source to your tap. This tour explores Sooke Lake and Goldstream Lake reservoirs, the surrounding forest, water disinfection facility and the treatment process that ensures the water delivered to your tap is clean and safe to drink.
Requirements: We require a minimum of 20 students, the responsible teacher and a minimum of 1 additional adult to chaperone the tour. The bus has a maximum of 42 seats available.
The school bus will pick you up from your school at the designated time and will return you in time for dismissal. That’s right - you don’t need to book a bus. The bus and driver are part of the program and will be with us for the day.
These School Tours are limited, so please complete the tour request form and send it by email to the address on the form or call 250.474.9627 for more information.
Other Age Groups
Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate lower grades on a tour at this time.
Enhance their learning!
To get the most out of the field trip, we recommend you explore drinking water related topics in the classroom using appropriate information from a complimentary educator’s kit. Our grade 2 “Every Drop Counts” and our grade 8 – 12 “Water in Our Community” educator’s kits include lesson plans, videos, maps, classroom water monitoring kits, and much more.
