Safety Education for Primary School

Stay Safe, Stay Clear

The Stay Safe, Stay Clear Programme educates primary school children about how to stay safe when they are playing outdoors near electricity poles and overhead wires.

The programme provides a fun, exciting and educational way for pupils from Junior infants to 6th class to discover the benefits of electricity, while learning to be safe around it through lesson plans and activities.

Primary School Lesson Plans

We have developed a series of Junior and Senior lesson plans specifically designed to support the curriculum strand units and learning objectives of the Science Curriculum.
