Mission Complete for Ella Manning!

June 15, 2015
Unison's Greatest Supporter for May, Ella Manning has successfully completed her mission for the month, after submitting an outstanding song about electrical safety!

Having been tasked with a safety focussed ‘mission’, to write a song, rap or poem around electrical safety, Ella took inspiration for her song lyrics from the safety messages on Unison's public website.

We visited Ella and Room 17 at Frimley School earlier this week to film all the action!

With teacher, Mr Russ on the guitar and Ella's classmates on backing vocals, Ella performed her electrical safety song to the tune of Stan Walker's hit song, 'Take it Easy'!

WOW, were we blown away - Ella's song rocked!


Ella's Song

To thank Ella and Room 17 for all their hard work, the class shared a morning tea of chocolate ‘Greatest Supporter’ cupcakes.  

Ella also received her cool prize pack, which included a Rebel Sport voucher, Lego and a little something for mum and dad too!


Verse 1

Unison, safety first,
don’t go near a power box
don’t fly kites in to power poles
stay away from fallen lines

Pre Chorus
Call before you cut
be careful where you dig
keep yourself safe
so just check it all out, check it all out

You gotta check your sockets, switches, cords and lights.
Heaters and blankets
You’ll be fine

Verse 2
Climbing poles, is not safe
fly a kite well away
Be safe around electricity
it can travel through and give you a shock

(Chorus) (Pre-Chorus)
