Life Education Gets Some New Wheels

Life Education Educator Liz Hills can continue her journey educating young students around Central Queensland in a brand new set of wheels thanks to Shell and Wesfarmers Curragh.

The new vehicle is made possible by a $20,000 donation by Shell, due to the partnership between Wesfarmers Curragh and their major fuel supplier Shell.

St Joseph’s Park Avenue State School in Rockhampton is one of the schools to benefit from this partnership. The school recently hosted a visit by Wesfarmers Curragh, Shell and Life Education to celebrate this important initiative.

Speaking at the launch, Life Education Queensland CEO Michael Fawsitt congratulated Shell and Wesfarmers Curragh for their commitment to the health and wellbeing of children in the region.

“Our Educator travels large distances to bring the Life Education program to schools throughout Central Queensland, so this is an important contribution to ensuring that children continue to access vital drug and health education.”

The funding from Shell will support schools in Rockhampton, Yeppoon, Blackwater, Emerald, Moranbah, and numerous other towns across the region. Wesfarmers Curragh has been a proud supporter of Life Education in central Queensland since 2009.

“Shell and Wesfarmers Curragh are always looking for better ways to work together and deepen our relationship. This opportunity is a great example of Shell investing in collaborative partnerships with our customers, through supporting the communities in which they operate,” said Nikki Gerling, Shell Business Manager, Commercial Sales & Marketing.


Wesfarmers Curragh General Manager Craig McCabe said the company was extremely pleased that Shell have agreed to support Life Education in Central Queensland.

“Providing additional support to Life Education through our business partnership with Shell is something we are very proud of. It shows that we are not only capable of working together in a business sense but also able to work together to support our local communities,” Mr McCabe said.

The new vehicle with its distinctive branding will soon be seen visiting the region’s schools. The current vehicle, sponsored by Wesfarmers Curragh, will be redeployed for use in the Gladstone region.
