2020 MFS Schools Fire Safety Program and Competition

MFS Image - Carousel - Schools Fire Safety Program & Competition

It's back for 2020, the Annual Schools Fire Safety Program and Competition. 

Since 2002 the SA Metropolitan Fire Service has promoted the annual “Schools Fire Safety Program and Competition” to all South Australian Primary and Junior Primary schools. Over the years we’ve had fantastic responses from all over the state.

The Poster and Multimedia Competitions can be incorporated into the Australian Curriculum utilising 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.

Your choice of activity will determine the Australian Curriculum links. 

Australian Curriculum Links: https://www.acara.edu.au/curriculum/learning-areas-subjects

With a closing date Friday 23 October 2020, the MFS Fire Safety Program Poster and Multimedia Competition can be included in the curriculum in Term 3 or early in Term 4. The children can enter with a simple poster, or they can be as adventurous as they like using the multi-media competition.

All information you need:

  • Will be emailed to all schools and posted on various social media outlets.
  • Poster Competition: Teachers can teach and use any of the fire safety messages as the subject for the children’s poster entries. Original artwork only – no electronic entries. Please see attached Teaching Notes and Poster Competition instructions. There is a suggested guide for year level topics but if Teachers wish, they are welcome to mix and match.
  • Multimedia Competition: Students can use any form of creative media to convey the fire safety messages – dance, song, video, TV ad, powerpoint presentation, banner, mural – tap into your students’ creativity! Please see attached Teaching Notes and Multimedia Competition instructions. There is a suggested guide for year level topics but if Teachers wish, they are welcome to mix and match.

We will be offering individual Gift Voucher prizes for the best entry in every year level and Merit Certificates in the Poster Competition and the Multimedia Competition. Every student who enters will receive a gift for participating. Winners will be notified and prizes will be distributed week commencing 23 November 2020.

Winning Poster competition entries will be displayed in MFS Fire Stations around the State and here on the MFS website.

We appreciate your support and we’re excited to see what this year’s competition will bring! Please feel free to share this information among your peers and colleagues and on your social media groups and pages.
