Isn't it even worse that some of these current fires were lit by unsupervised children, playing about with matches & in one case with a mini blowtorch? :((

Do they not teach kids about the dangers of bushfires — and of playing with fire in general — any more?

How many other things besides basic safety, reading, writing & arithmetic are teachers are expected to instruct reluctant children? :ymsigh:

Don't the local fire brigades come around each year to visit primary schools any more, like they did when I was little?

Couldn't I assume that when I see a fire truck or a police car outside a local school that they might be there to give talks to the school?

Or maybe one of the kids has just been trying to burn down the school? :D

Is that why in the school holidays some schools really do get burned down?

Have there been any schools burned down in the current bushfires?

How will students get an education if the schools are burned down?

What if other buildings were repurposed as schools?

Would some of the local businesses offer space for education?

Would the town even exists if all the schools and business burned down?

Don't those people, scattered & in temporary accommodation, still own land & businesses in the areas impacted by those devastating bushfires?

And — just as the bushland is already starting to regenerate where the fires are now out — won't many of the landowners come back and start rebuilding as soon as they can?

What about all the government & insurance charges which might stop people from being able to start rebuilding?
