Kidsafe WA with the support of Healthway have developed a new resource, the Safety in Schools Resource Kit, which is available for free for primary schools across Western Australia.
Kidsafe WA’s Safety in Schools Resource Kit is a school based injury prevention teaching resource that can be implemented by the classroom or specialist health teacher during the regular health lesson. The resource kit is targeted at children in pre-primary, year one and/or year two and aims at increasing the knowledge, skills and attitudes of participating students towards preventing unintentional injuries on the road, at home and at play.
The resource kit includes six detailed lesson plans covering child injury prevention topics including road safety, poison safety, farm safety, water safety, play safety and sport safety.
Provided within the lesson plans are a range of activities for students and resources for teachers providing further information for each topic area. The lesson plans also link to the Western Australian Curriculum, Health and Physical Education learning area in the strand of Personal, Social and Community Health.
