“I am proud to be an ambassador for Life Education" Mr Chris Spence
Healthy Harold Life Education Ambassador Mr CHRIS SPENCE member for the Entrance recently had the opportunity to join year 3 and year 4 students for their session with Life Education presenter Natalie Fennell at Ourimbah Public School. Here is an excerpt from his speech to Parliament following the visit: “Since its formation in 1979, Life Education's Healthy Harold school program has been delighting and educating schoolchildren with positive and informative programs. Schoolchildren are excited and expectant when news of an impending visit from Healthy Harold is announced at their school. Students and teachers at Ourimbah Public School were thrilled when it was their turn to have the Healthy Harold van at their school last month.
When I arrived at the school the students were buzzing with anticipation. It was great to see students get so enthusiastic about such a valuable program. From the moment the students were seated in the van it was easy to see why they were all so excited. The Healthy Harold program is geared to engaging the students through interactive games and activities, up-to-date technology and teaching methods, and has a vibrant presenter who captured their attention from the start. The session I attended focused on building strong cybersafety awareness and increasing understanding of some of the dangers of being online.
I am proud to be an ambassador for Life Education and commend their continued investment in our students in partnership with our teachers and education programs. I particularly commend Life Education for their dedication to remaining relevant to the issues that face our students as they grow, especially cybersafety and awareness.
