Carina C&K welcome The Wiggles after securing competition win

Children at C&K Carina welcomed a recent visit from famous children’s group The Wiggles after winning a competition run by the Electrical Safety Office.


The service was chosen because of the positive energy of the kids and their active engagement with the safety messages from The Wiggles’ song Electricity.


“Education through music is a powerful tool, and we’re honoured to join forces with The Electrical Safety Office to help champion electrical safety,” Purple Wiggle Lachy Gillespie said.


“Our song ‘Electricity’ helps to amplify the importance of electrical safety in a way that children can engage with, and we are so pleased it has resonated with so many Queensland children.”


Queensland Minister for Industrial Relations, Grace Grace said the Government was “blown away” by the number of creative entries, and that it was “fantastic to see educators right across the state using our educational resources to share important electrical safety messages.”


The Queensland Government first partnered with The Wiggles in 2022 to teach children about electrical safety, with the pair joining forces once again in 2023 to spread the free kindy message to Queensland families.


The competition coincided with The Wiggles visiting Queensland for their scheduled concert tour. As part of the competition, 13 runners-up from Brisbane, Toowoomba, Yeppoon, and Hughenden received family passes to The Wiggles Big Show Tour, coming to Queensland later this year.


Young entrant Millie, who submitted an entry for her Gin Gin Community Kindy also wowed the judges and received a video call from The Wiggles for her efforts.
