Spark of interest in home safety.

Pupils in North Yorkshire will learn how to stay safe in the home when they are visited by an education team from energy provider npower.

On January 7, about 60 youngsters, aged from four to seven, at Great Ayton's Marwood Infant School, will be given potentially life-saving lessons about electricity and power, from npower staff and company mascot Electra.

Headteacher Vivienne Smith said: "How to use electricity safely is a very important safety issue.

"We hope pupils will learn valuable lessons in a fun and exciting way."

Liz Gater, npower's education development officer, said: "We believe in putting our energy into the local community and education.

"We're very much looking forward to visiting everyone at Marwood."

The presentations will be supported by npower's Power Pack resource, which has been designed by the company in conjunction with teachers.
