“One of the best field trips in the history of Canada…”

The City of Victoria recently hosted over 700 students at Public Works Day.

Here is one student’s reflections on his day:

Dear Public Works Department,

Thank you for the awesome field trip to Public Works!  It was probably one of the best field trips ever in the history of Canada!  I was the blonde kid that hopped in the record breaking Smart Car at the last minute to make a total of 14 kids inside!  I really enjoyed all of the stations but my favorites were the asphalt and the wood shop stations.  There was absolutely nothing that you could’ve done better.  Usually at places where they serve whole apples the apples are really mushy and bad.  Not at Public Works!  Anyways, thanks a bunch!  I hope I get to be a Grade Four teacher when I grow up.  Then I can take my class to Public Works every year!

Sincerely,

Silas

Grade 4 Student

Editor’s Note:  Silas, We are delighted you enjoyed Public Works so much!  All the very best with your dream to become a teacher.  Another way to spend lots of time with us would be to consider a future job at Public Works.  Then you could have this much fun every day!
