Dettol and Quirky Kid

As Australia opens back up and schools return to face-to-face learning, hygiene is more important than ever to help keep us protected, healthy and connected. Yet new research from Dettol’s Global Hygiene Council has identified that almost half (45 percent) of Australian primary school children don't always use soap when washing their hands at school.

To help more than 1 million Aussie kids learn healthy habits, Dettol has developed the Catch a Habit program with Quirky Kid’s very own Dr Kimberley O’Brien as the spokesperson. Because research in neuroscience has shown that play enhances children’s development and ability to learn new skills, Catch a Habit harnesses the power of play to teach children good hand hygiene habits and help stop the spread of germs.

About the Program

The innovative Catch a Habit program includes a new multilingual handwashing song, a new hygiene school curriculum called “Hygiene Quest” and interactive experiential learning at Sydney Opera House.

Dettol’s research has also found that more than 1 in 3 (36 percent) children haven’t learnt how to wash their hands at school and more than 1 in 4 (26 percent) Australian parents and teachers don’t know when children should wash their hands with soap and water. The Catch a Habit program will help bridge Australia’s hygiene literacy gap.
