Disaster resilience in action

Survive and Thrive

A long-term bushfire education partnership between Anglesea Primary School and the Anglesea CFA in Victoria supports students to apply their learning to keep the community safe.

In August 2019, Year 6 students from Anglesea Primary, seeking support to bring their bushfire safety initiatives to life, pitched their ideas to a local panel of 'sharks'. 

Firestick Project

A Wurundjeri-led project in partnership with Dixons Creek Primary School, supported by Yarra Ranges Council and the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning, Victoria.

The devastation that followed Black Saturday had a significant impact on the Dixons Creek community. Through the Firestick project, students learn about fire management from Indigenous Elders. The project helps both the children and wider community establish a positive relationship with fire. Learn more
