At Life Education, we are on a mission; to empower our children to make safer and healthier choices. We are achieving this through preventative health education.
We can equip the next generation with the knowledge, skills and strategies required to make better choices but we cannot do it alone. Adopting a system-wide approach, our program is most effective when engaging the entire school community; students, teachers and parents.
Delivered face to face by a team of specially trained educators and supported by range pre and post-visit resources, our evidence-based program is not a rule book and does not dictate to children, this is essential to our success.
Health education is key to preventing harms associated with the misuse of alcohol and other drugs. Our approach to drug education is building year on year with age and stage appropriate content and delivery methods, which are linked to both the Australian Curriculum and the NSW PDHPE Syllabus.
In preschool and lower-middle primary school children learn about safety around medicines, in upper primary, our Decisions module teaches children about the effects that legal and illegal drugs have on the body and our Face The Facts module extends the learning for secondary school students.
Our preschool and early primary modules cover four key areas of safety:
- Sun safety: making healthy choices in the sun
- Water safety: staying safe in and around the water
- Road safety: how to stay safe on and near roads
- Personal safety: seeking safe spaces and how friends can support us
Browsing the internet, online gaming, social media and streaming media - the use of online technology is growing every day. We prepare children to make safe choices online for themselves and others they interact with. Ranging from browser and security tips to being a responsible digital citizen.
'You are what you eat' doesn't have a literal meaning but is a good representation of our approach to food and nutrition. By sharing with students the impact different foods have on our bodies, they are able to make informed (and healthier) choices.
Healthy Harold loves to be active, and so do we! Not limited by our Mobile Learning Centres, our educators encourage all participants (including the teachers) to get physically active during our sessions. This helps students to understand the difference being active, or not, makes to our health.
We do not strictly dictate that children should exercise (program-driven) or play sport (as barriers may prevent some from taking part) specifically. Everyone can choose to be active, however, in a way that suits their needs and situation.
Building year on year with age-appropriate and relevant content around friendships, respectful relationships, bullying and understanding emotions our emotions. The modules listed below have grown in popularity as we realised the critical nature of these skills in our community.
