My Resilient Schools program

Brisbane City Council and the Brisbane City State Emergency Service Unit are working together to deliver the My Resilient Schools program which offers free, two 40 minute sessions aimed at building resilience and disaster preparedness for grades five and six. The program is delivered in the lead up to storm season and is designed to complement core curriculum studies on natural hazards. It will be delivered by trained State Emergency Service (SES) volunteers and Council Officers.

In order to comply with the Queensland Chief Health Officer’s Directives, with regard to non-essential activities and social distancing requirements, SES have had to suspend face to face community engagements including all educational programs until further notice.  This means the My Resilient Schools program is cancelled for Term 3, tentative bookings can be made for Term 4, 2020, however recommencement of the program in Term 4 will be dependent on further direction. 

Due to COVID-19 restrictions we are currently developing a new way to share our My Resilient Schools Program with you all, whilst staying COVID Safe.  An exciting new online presentation will soon be available for teachers to access and use in their classrooms.  This online presentation will continue to support the Year 5 and 6 curriculums by building resilience and disaster preparedness in students, 

Our face to face presentation by the SES volunteers will continue in classrooms once COVID-19 Safe practices can be fully applied to the program. 

How to register

You can make a tentative booking for term 4 sessions which run on Monday and Thursday. Register for your session online.
