The SA CFS is currently developing a brand new Child and Youth Bushfire Education Program for childcare centres, kindergartens, primary or high schools, OSHC/Vac Cares or any youth teams. If this interests you, we are looking for groups who are keen to engage in a pilot program with us.

The Oliphant Science Awards

This year, the CFS and the Australian Institute for Disaster Resilience are proud sponsors of the poster category for SA’s largest science competition, the Oliphant Science Awards.

If you are a teacher or student in primary or secondary school with an avid interest in science, this might be the competition for you!

Poster titles include Bushfire Safety and Indigenous Land Management. It will also involve awarding two prizes for entries that are the most inspiring or innovative with a community safety and natural hazards theme (one primary and one secondary student entry).
