Schools Plus Bushfire Appeal

Australian Schools Plus, NSW

The unprecedented bushfire season over this spring and summer has devastated hundreds of communities in regional Australia. So many lives, homes and businesses have been lost and thousands of Australians have experienced trauma and anxiety as they and their loved ones were threatened by the flames.

While the bushfire season is not yet over, the recovery period has begun. Schools are central, safe and stabilising forces in communities; since school resumed at the end of January, principals and teachers have worked hard to return to usual school routines and create a sense of stability and normality for students and their families. 

Children are among the most vulnerable members of the community following a bushfire. Research on the Black Saturday bushfires in Victoria found primary school students from affected areas were significantly more likely than their peers to be lagging in numeracy and literacy years after the disaster.

Schools Plus is working with state and federal education departments, other not-for-profit organisations and our network of schools to support the mental health, wellbeing and learning needs of students affected by this season’s devastating bushfires. Many schools do not have adequate resources to support their students, teachers and families through this crisis – for instance, they may have limited counselling support, school-based welfare staff or access to mental health providers in their community.

Your donation will help provide the resources and support required to ensure students in bushfire-affected regions across Australia can recover and fulfil their potential – thank you for giving.
