Education

As part of our Community Engagement Strategy 2017-2021, Goldenfields Water is working towards delivering water-related educational resources relevant to primary, secondary and tertiary educational levels to help build awareness around the importance of water within our communities.

Depth Days

Depth Days are a unique opportunity for schools within the Goldenfields Water supply area to come together to experience the water processing system first-hand and relate it back to their HSC studies.

Our Depth Days are based on research into the curriculum and cover topics relating to HSC Chemistry, Investigating Science and Geography.  They are designed for senior secondary students and are held each year in May. 

Depth Days cover a range of different activities including:

  • Seeing the water process in action - tour of the water treatment plant
  • Getting hands on with real-life experiments in the lab
  • Use the findings from the day to work on exercises relating to key HSC curriculum study topics

Depth Days are held at the Jugiong Water Treatment Plant and are free for all schools within the Goldenfields Water supply area to attend (schools must organise their own transport).

 If schools would like to register their interest in attending the Depth Days during 2020, please email Goldenfields Water's Community Education and Engagement Officer at communityengagement@gwcc.nsw.gov.au IMG_0562.jpg
