Essential Energy is encouraging primary schools to register in its electrical safety program by next Friday.
The interactive public safety program will be held from September 4 to 8 and will teach students how to stay safe around electricity.
The program will also include the Be a Safety Star poster competition, which gives schools a chance to win $1000 for their P&C Association to spend on safety improvements by creating an electrical safety-inspired artwork.
Schools that register will receive a free resource kit with interactive lessons and video content.
The kit will include a circuit kit including a light bulb, lamp holder, switch, battery and wires to show students how electricity works, interactive whiteboard lessons and video content, electricity safety posters and a safety fact sheet, and student prizes of electricity safety stickers and self-powered torches.
