Strathewen Primary School

Strathewen Primary School

Strathewen was one of many communities impacted by the 2009 Black Saturday bushfires in Victoria.

In 2016, Strathewen Primary School worked with the Arthur's Creek/Strathewen Country Fire Authority (CFA) to deliver a program related to bushfire risk, focused on helping children 'love where they live' again.

Part of the CFA's broader Survive and Thrive program, the project used Claymation video to creatively engage students in learning about fire behaviour.

The project educated students on the risks of living in a high fire danger area, encouraging them to think proactively about ways of reducing and managing the risk.
