Bushfire Kids Connect is piloting a new program at 10 schools across SA, including Lincoln Gardens and Port Lincoln Primary School called 'Bushfire Brave'.

The students start with an interactive program which takes them through information about how and why bushfires happen, the emotional wellbeing after a bushfire and at the end they design something innovative to assist families who may be impacted by bushfires in the future.
