We have been facilitating Resilience Sessions throughout Queensland. This video captures the time spent with Caboolture Special School's Emergency Service VTE (Vocational Technical Education) program students.
Students participate in the Caboolture Special School Amateur Radio Club Station VK4HBU, the VLB 327 Maritime Coast Station and various radio clubs, as well as the International Space Station (ISS) / Satellite Project. Some students volunteer with State Emergency Service (SES), the Coast Guard, the QFRS Rural Fire Service and Toorbul Rural Fire Brigade. Students are also involved in training programs such as the Queensland Rail -- Rail Safety Training, Workplace Health & Safety Training, First Aid & Resuscitation Training, Fire Safety Training.
We hope that other schools can see how beneficial, interesting and fun it can be for students to volunteer, learn about emergency services and prepare for natural disasters.
