Drinkwater School is also fortunate to have a fully developed extra curricular program, which gives children the opportunity to participate in field hockey, volleyball, cross-country, track and field and soccer as well as musical productions. We encourage our students to work and play together co-operatively, modeling responsible and respectful behaviour.

We strive to build a strong sense of school community with high parent involvement. When we work together, we are able to achieve higher results and provide a variety of extra activities for our students.Together we can make a difference.

History

Drinkwater School is named after Mr. William Drinkwater, one of the original settlers of the Cowichan Valley. He was Reeve of the Municipality of North Cowichan for two terms:1 878-1879 and 1888-1893. Our school was originally built in 1968, and has since been renovated twice. It is currently undergoing a seismic upgrade.

The school is located on Lane Road. Over the last several years, increased residential development has changed the setting of the school from a rural to a more suburban setting.
