Learning bushfire safety in schools

November 28, 2017

This week, we talk bushfire safety with Anglesea Primary School principal, Pamela Sandlant. Together with the local fire service and the community, the school developed the award-winning “Survive & Thrive” program, which teaches children how to be bushfire aware and understand bushfire safety. Better still, the students then teach what they’ve learnt to visiting schools and the broader community with their presentations.
