Helping children who have been affected by bushfires

Krishnamoorthy, Govind and Ayre, Kay and Rees, Bronwyn (2020) Helping children who have been affected by bushfires. Reflections, 2020 (1). pp. 3-6.


As bushfires continue to rage, over six hundred schools and early education centres have been closed in Queensland and New South Wales. The devastating toll of the fires have been felt by many across the country, with some children having been urgently evacuated while still in school. Families have lost their homes to the fires, while large numbers of animals and livestock have perished. Images of distress and dislocated men, women and children have served as a reminder of the significant losses and traumatic impact of such natural disasters.
