Islington children first participants in gas safety programme

Children at two Islington primary schools have become the first to take part in a new gas safety education programme, the Islington Gazette has reported.

Pupils at Winton Primary School in Killick Street, Kings Cross and Rotherfield Primary School in Rotherfield Street worked with Gas Safe Register and the Gas Safe Charity to learn about dangers such as carbon monoxide poisoning and explosions.

The lessons were the launch of a nationwide campaign in schools that will include a theatre roadshow about where gas comes from and explain how it can be used safely to cook food and heat homes.

As well as being the first to see the production, the children were also given access to an online interactive virtual house. They watched videos before being given homework activities and a parent’s booklet with input from teachers to ensure messages are sent home.
