For Teachers

Teacher-led bushfire and disaster resilience lessons

As a part of the Child and Youth Bushfire Program, a Disaster Resilience Education initiative by the South Australian Country Fire Service, NEW curriculum linked lesson plans, teacher guides, and resources are available now!

These education resources follow a child centred, teacher facilitated mode of learning drawing on the current research and practice in Australia around disaster resilience education, as illustrated by the Australian Institute for Disaster Resilience.

Online Learning DRE

Professional learning

We have developed an online learning module on Disaster Resilience Education and Bushfires.

The module takes 15 – 20 minutes to complete and provides an overview of the benefits of Disaster Resilience Education for young people and their communities.

Designed for teachers and educators, the module will introduce participants to the different ways that bushfire information can be incorporated into lessons. It also provides links to resources and tips on how to develop your own bushfire lessons that are linked to the Australian or SACE Curricula.
