Electricity Safety Week

Be a Safety Star illustration

Electricity Safety Week 2019 was held from 2 to 6 September in NSW primary schools.

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 in collaboration with the Department of Education to meet the Science and Technology and PDHPE curriculum requirements for years K - 6.

The resources include an Electricity & Safety Unit Lesson Book for Stage 3, Electricity Safety Lesson Book for K-6 and four interactive whiteboard lessons featuring activities, videos and teachers' notes that will engage your students in learning about electricity and how to be safe around it.

Each school that registered for the program received a pack containing curriculum materials, prizes, a simple circuit kit, posters, stickers and more.
