Upway High School

Throughout the School Curriculum Natural Hazards Resilience Package (SCNHRP) project, CFA and SES staff worked collaboratively with teachers and students.

This work engaged participating schools to design, develop and implement a DRE program that addressed local natural hazard risks and facilitated the development of disaster resilience strategies with the students.

The SCNHRP project engaged students in five web-based lessons which encouraged hands-on participatory learning and decision-making challenges which helped students to actively reduce their local hazard risks. 

Lesson activities included mapping exercises to assess local hazard risks and group discussions to develop possible actions to reduce hazard risks. These lessons were facilitated by teachers who had participated in a content-specific professional development session run by CFA and SES staff.
