Think Safety Live Healthy
The Health & Safety teachers within the Gozo College organised once again a hands-on experience for all Year 6 Gozo College pupils. This experience took place between the 4th and 8th March 2013, in a typical Gozitan Farmhouse situated in the picturesque village of Gharb.
The various rooms of the farmhouse provided the right setting for leading the children to become aware of the various hazards found around the house and how these risks can be eliminated or minimised. The focused was on the kitchen-dining-living area, pool/BBQ/garden area, bedroom and bathroom. These areas were equipped with all potential hazards that are normally found in such places, as well as safety gadgets and signs.
Apart from this, chiildren were also extended to other aspects like Health, Education and Sport to show the student how we can lead a better quality of life. The issue of a society exerting less pressure on the environment was also emphasised by explaining and discussing various topics such as: air quality, energy, water and waste. This activity is part of the ecoGozo Action Plan with one of its objective is to achieve a stable and healthy environment for an improved quality of life.
The students were divided into groups and took part in games and quizzes. This was a fun way to evaluate the session.
