School Incursions

When excursions to our Treatment Plants and sites aren’t possible or suitable, we offer free interactive and educational classroom incursions to LOCAL schools from within our service area.

Unfortunately we are unable to visit schools outside our service area, however most Victorian Water Corporations do provide a similar service.

These incursions can cover a range of water and wastewater topics, including:

  • the water cycle and our water supply
  • recycled water and how it is used in our community
  • wastewater and the 3Ps (only flushing Pee, Poo and Paper!)
  • water conservation
  • our Choose Tap campaign – why tap water is the best choice for your health, the environment and our hip pockets!
Incursions
Cowes Primary School students

Our Communications and Engagement Team can can customise their presentations and fun classroom activities to suit the individual school and class needs.

Our most popular classroom incursion ‘Down the drain to use again’ allows students to learn about the different types of water in the community, including drinking water, recycled water and storm water. The activity is full of fun, as we show students what they shouldn’t flush down the toilet or pour down the sink!

An incursion to your classroom(s) can be tailored to your school’s needs and to fit the curriculum you are focusing on. Incursion can be targeted for students from prep to grade six.
