Flood resources to build resilient students in Hawkesbury-Nepean Now Live

31/10/2019 09:00 AM

Minister for Jobs, Investment, Tourism and Western Sydney Stuart Ayres joined Western Sydney University and NSW State Emergency Service yesterday to launch new educational resources that build student understanding of flooding in the Hawkesbury-Nepean Valley.

The new online resources for teachers and students have been developed under a partnership between Infrastructure NSW, Western Sydney University, and the NSW State Emergency Service.

Researchers at the University’s Centre for Educational Research have developed the package to support teaching and learning in the ‘Water in the World’ curriculum for Year 7 and 8 high school Geography students.

The NSW SES is hosting the new resources on a dedicated ‘For Schools’ section on this website.

This new package will also provide a case study to help educate secondary students across New South Wales about flooding and how to be better prepared when these natural disasters happen.

Teachers can access the resources here:
