The thousands of children who visit Life Education NSW each year will have access to new technology thanks to a grant given to the organisation last week.
Member for Londonderry Prue Car MP recently visited Life Education’s headquarters in Colyton to announce that $10,000 for new Touch Screen Monitors will be delivered under the Londonderry Community Building Partnership.
Life Education engages school ages children through preventative health education and is a well-known component of Western Sydney primary education.
The delivery of two permanent ESmart 55” touch screen monitors in the Colyton Centre will benefit over 5,000 children who visit the site every year.
Ms Car said purchasing the new touch screens would allow Life Education to continue its important work in the community.
“Many of us have fond memories of Healthy Harold from school and I am delighted that as the Local Member of Parliament, I can now support Life Education to continue the good work it does,” she said.
“I want to congratulate Life Education and thank them for all the work they do in our community.”
Life Education NSW chief executive Kellie Sloane said the organisation had helped more than 473,000 western Sydney students over the last 30 years.
“We are very fortunate to have the support of Prue Car and many members of parliament across the state,” Ms Sloane said.
“I encourage schools throughout the electorate and across NSW to take up the opportunity, and make use of this important educational facility, by participating in the Healthy Harold program.”
