Sunshine Coast Get Ready Schools Competition 2019

Council is committed to ensuring the safety and wellbeing of residents and visitors to the region through working with all stakeholders involved in community safety. Council recognises building a region resilient to disasters is a shared responsibility between all levels of government, business community, non-government sector, our neighbourhoods and the individual.

Community engagement

Disaster preparedness education starts with our youngest community members. As part of its Get Ready Queensland program, council invited primary students (Prep to 6) to help tell our local communities how to best prepare for disasters and have the chance to win great prizes.

Students were asked to submit a 30-60 second video that encourages our community to have a disaster “WHAT-IF PLAN”. Entries closed Tuesday 30 April 2019.

The finalists will be played at the Sunshine Coast Emergency Services Community Expo on Sunday, 19 May 2019. Sunshine Coast Stadium, 11am to 3pm.

Winners announced

Congratulations to Jorja and Portia from Brightwater State School who are the 2019 Sunshine Coast Get Ready Schools Competition winners. Congratulations also to 'runners up' Meridan State College, and finalists Pacific Lutheran College and Danny from Brighwater State School.
