Since 1980 Primary schools throughout New Zealand have received FREE 1B5 homework exercise books with safety awareness cartoons printed on the covers. These cartoons aim to teach children of all ages various aspects of Safety Awareness.
The internal pages are the standard 7mm ruled line, and the books are supplied FREE on the understanding that children use the books for homework purposes, and that they are NOT covered unless clear dura-seal is used. The front cover has a picture of the New Zealand Coat of Arms with a description of the various components, plus the words of the national anthem. There is also a box at the bottom of the front cover where children write their name and the class they are in - the subject box says "Homework".
Underneath each cartoon there is a space where local businesses place their details along with a support message for their local school and families. It is by way of these businesses supporting specific child safety awareness cartoons on the covers of the books that we can provide them FREE to schools throughout the country as we have done for the last 28 years.
