Safe Sparks Programme
We offer an award-winning safety education programme for primary schools in our areas, completely free of charge.
Safe Sparks delivers important and serious electrical safety messages, which we believe to be life-saving for the children in our community.
Run as a two-part, indoor and outdoor session, Unison's Safe Sparks schools programme has specially designed sessions for different primary year levels - Junior & Middle School (Year 1 - 4) and Senior School (Year 5 - 8).
Our programme runs for around one hour and is adapted to suit your individual school bell times.
Our Programme Coordinator will take students through a fun and informative, visual presentation covering the following key topics:
- Identifying electricity in the home, classroom and community
- Understanding how electricity is made
- Developing skills to keep ourselves, our friends and our family safe around electricity
- Identifying Unison's electrical assets out in the community
Delivered by a member of our field staff, students are given the opportunity to get an up close look at the safety gear and equipment they use while working around electricity, along with examples of things that have been damaged by electricity.
Who are Safe Sparks?
Safe Sparks are cool kids who know how to keep themselves and others safe around electricity in their home, classroom and out in the community.
Safe Sparks are always on the lookout for electrical dangers and aren't afraid to speak out if they see a problem!
Activity Books & Certificates
All students who take part in Unison's Safe Sparks Schools Programme will be presented with a follow-up activity book and certificate of completion.
Using puzzles, activities and games, our activity books are the perfect follow-up resource to our Safe Sparks Schools Programme.
