Water Stewardship

Recently the students in Ms Fyles’ grade 3 / 4 class at Bouchie Lake School entered the BC Hydro Community Champions contest.  Students viewed 15 short videos highlighting community projects and voted for a project which inspired them.  In return we were given the opportunity to enter a project we wanted to pursue.  The students chose putting a gate into our fence to allow all of our classes’ access to Bouchie Creek in order to promote water stewardship education.  Of 140 projects entered, we were one of 25 winners randomly selected to receive $1,000 towards our project. We are SO EXCITED!! Our gate will go in this spring and we will work with local biologists to learn about the importance of our creek and the life in and around it. The creek runs beside our school garden and is an important link between the school yard, including our school garden and the surrounding wildlife areas.
