Resources


There are a variety of resources now on the site, from videos to quizzes to examples of achievements in different projects! However it is useful if these are organised in some way so that they can be accessed easily by teachers and educators! I have organised this by creating a sub menu under resources for curriculum materials, such as the ones I have developed for UK school teachers, but can be adapted for use elsewhere very easily, as well as resources for community based projects and last but by no means least for any resources that may be out there for clubs, societies and institutions such as the boy scout and guide movement! I will kick off this new area of the site by uploading teacher material later today! If you have material you would like to see displayed contact me and I will let you know how to do this!

i have written some guidelines base in our school and it is also adaptable to the majority of schools in our locality, but it seems that most of our school officials are not focusing more on the benefit it could give them, still iam trying to convince them to give me a chance to hold training conducted by the local fire brigade and my system of mobilizing disaster preparedness.

one of my experiences were hold a school safety project on Central Java flood in Indonesia. Using Participatory method, this project could reveal participatory activities like school Risk and vulnerability assessment, school hazard map, evacuation map, emergency mechanism response and also conducting mock drill in Laban 1 elementary located 300 metres from Bengawan Solo River. The concept of the drill was to prepare the school as a temporary shelter with sufficient logistics and facilities such as medical equipment and tents. The school communities which have been trained earlier on medical first aid, barrack management and evacuation skills are prepared to be able to conduct aid for affected people.
