Toowoomba student wins national Ergon name a character competition
Electricity Safety Week begins on 4 September and Joshua Ringelstein from Sacred Heart Primary School, Toowoomba can’t wait as his competition winning name for one of the Safety Heroes will be a feature of the week’s activities.
Joshua’s teacher, Charlie Barrett shared the competition details with her class and several students entered. Joshua’s winning entry named the green character ‘Electro Ethan’.
“To be a safety hero you must be brave, strong, have initiative and know how to be safe around electricity,” said Joshua’s winning entry.
“If you are in danger involving electricity one of our safety heroes will come and help you and show you how to use electricity safely. Electro Ethan became a safety hero by always being safe around electricity and thinking twice before he used anything involving electricity. Remember to always think twice before you touch anything that could be conducting electricity.”
Matt Pearson from Ergon’s Toowoomba Depot visited Sacred Heart Primary School today to present Joshua with his prize of an iPad mini along with a credit card for $250 for his class and another for $750 for school resources.
Joshua was one of only three winners across Australia.
