MFS Story Time with MFS Firefighter Phil

Listen to MFS Firefighter, Phil read this story for young children 5 years old and over.

The book, ‘Aaron’s Promise’, is for young children who may be curious about fire and parents who would like to discuss the dangers of playing with lighters and matches with their children.

Beautifully written and illustrated, it is a great educational resource for parents to teach their children about fire safety with matches and lighters. We hope you enjoy – and share with teachers and caregivers of 5+ children.

 

2021 MFS Schools Fire Safety Program and Competition

The MFS Schools Fire Safety Program and Poster Competition is back for term 3 and 4 in 2021. In it's 19th year, this eagerly anticipated annual education program is loads of fun while at the same time giving life saving information to primary school children and their families.

This year the program is offered to all South Australian children from Reception to Year 6 with lesson plans being provided to all Junior Primary and Primary School Teachers as well as Out of School Hours Care facilities. Once the lessons have been delivered by teachers, children are encouraged to create a poster or drawing illustrating their understanding of the fire safety messages.

The poster competition closes on Friday 22 October 2021.

Gift vouchers will be awarded for the winning entries in each year level, along with Merit Certificates. Every student receives a participation gift.

The Poster competition can be incorporated into the Australian Curriculum using General Capabilities – Literacy, Critical and Creative Thinking, Personal and Social Capability – across a range of Learning Areas, but in particular Health and Physical Education, Technologies, English, Languages and The Arts.

The choice of activity is determined by the Australian Curriculum links.

We appreciate your support and we’re excited to see what this year’s competition brings.

Winners will be notified and prizes will be distributed week commencing 15 November 2021.
