Resources for primary teachers

Essential Energy Electricity Safety Week NSW

Electricity Safety Week 2014 will be held 8-12 September in primary schools across NSW.

Electricity Safety Week raises awareness of the hazards associated with electricity and teaches students how to be safe around electricity. The resources have been developed with the Department of Education and Communities, and aims to help teachers meet the Science and Technology and PDHPE curriculums for years K - 6.

In 2013 the program was a success, with a massive 94 per cent of primary schools within Essential Energy’s footprint registering to participate in the program. In 2014, Essential Energy will again be offering resources to primary schools for Electricity Safety Week that can be used for Years K-6. Electricity Safety Week is part of our commitment to public safety and education.
 
Registrations for 2014 will open in June
Schools who register will receive a free Electricity Safety Week prize pack for use at their school. The prize pack includes teacher notes, student giveaways, posters and other useful information about electricity and safety.

Interactive whiteboard lessons for Years 5 and 6
A series of four interactive whiteboard lessons are being developed for Years 5 and 6 teachers with flash activities, videos and virtual experiments that aligned with the NSW Board of Studies Syllabus for Science and Technology.

The lessons will be available for download soon.
