Incursions and presentations
Organise a free classroom incursion or presentation to learn about Melbourne's water supply and sewage treatment processes.
Aimed at primary aged students from Prep to Year 6, our classroom presentations allow students to learn about a range of water related topics.
They can be used to introduce water as a topic or to consolidate previous learning. The free school incursions can be tailored to your needs, with presentations for different age groups and water topics.
Presentations are only available to schools within the Yarra Valley Water district with a limit of three presentations per school, per year.
