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. The tour explores Sooke Lake reservoir, the surrounding forest and the water disinfection process that ensures the water delivered to your tap is clean and safe to drink. All you need to do is select the day and desired pick up and drop off times. We suggest pick up at the school between 8:30 - 9:00 and drop off back at school at approximately 2:30 (depending on the school location and dismissal time). The bus and driver are part of the program and will be with us for the day.
We require a minimum of 20 students, the responsible teacher and a minimum of 1 additional adult to chaperone the tour. The school bus has a maximum of 42 seats available.
Tours are limited. Please email the completed tour request form. We will email you to confirm your tour and provide additional tour information. We can accommodate a Grade 4/5 split, but we regret that we can’t substitute other school grades at this time. Please call 250.474.9627 for more information.
Enhance their learning! To get the most out of the tour, 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 that could be adapted for Grade 5.
