Parents and Teachers

The aim of this website is to teach primary school-age children important gas and electrical safety lessons to help ensure their safety around the home, outdoors and at school.

In developing this website ESV worked with education consultants and focused specifically on children in the seven to nine years age group, or primary school grades three to four.

Supporting lesson plans and teaching materials have been designed to be appropriate for children in this age range. These are available in the Teacher’s Area.

Through a combination of short educational videos and age-appropriate games and challenges, PowerSafe Buddies provides a basic overview of the concepts of energy, gas and electricity.

It aims to teach a number of important lessons and behaviours. Once children satisfactorily complete the three levels of learning and challenges they are able to print a certificate to show that they are a PowerSafe Buddy.

Energy Safe Victoria can provide additional material on electricity and gas safety on request. More information can be found on the ESV website:
