Resources for primary teachers
Electricity Safety Week NSW
Electricity Safety Week 2013 will be held 9-13 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 2012 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 2013, Essential Energy has again offered 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.
