This is a really challenging time for many communities across Australia as a result of the horrific bushfires occurring in parts of Australia already affected by drought.

Schools and early childhood services are the centre of Australian communities.

So, for all those working in schools and early childhood centres, especially in areas affected by the fires, we understand that this is an especially tough time as you work together with children and families to process these events.

And of course, the impact of bushfires doesn’t end once the flames are extinguished. The effects of natural disaster on our schools and communities can be long lasting. Please remember to look after yourself while you continue to look after those around you.

You are in our thoughts and always on our mind.

Stay safe and take care.
