The year 1/ 2 class at Marmion Primary school have joined Ben and Bella on their adventures and transformed into burn-safe superheroes ready to spot the burn bandits.
Their teacher Ms Harris incorporated our latest burn prevention education program, The Ben and Bella Superheroes Story Book series, into their classroom curriculum in term two. Through storytelling, children increased their knowledge of burn injury, burn prevention, and simple first aid for burn injuries. To extend their learning, students were given the opportunity to engage in experiences and activities from the teacher guides.
Ms Harris shared with us that "The kids absolutely LOVED the book!! They wanted to look for their own burn bandits when they had their masks on!." She also said that the teacher and student feedback about the storybooks and activities was overwhelmingly positive. We were also thrilled to receive photos of the students engaging in the program, and we could not help but notice how much fun they were having!
Prevention education is crucial for reducing burn injury, and we can not wait to see more schools like Marmion Primary raising awareness on burn safety and correct first aid treatments to treat burns.
