A Wurundjeri-led project in partnership with Dixons Creek Primary School, Yarra Ranges Council and the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning, Victoria
Winner, Resilient Australia National School Award, 2018
The devastation that followed Black Saturday had a significant impact on the Dixons Creek community and the wellbeing of children at the local primary school. 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.
