Local sponsor Retravision joined forces with Variety WA, the children's charity to fund the refurbishment of two Mobile
Learning Centres for Life Education WA.At a cost of $88,000, this major project will enable up to 20,000 students in 52 Western Australian schools to access the Life Education program annually.
The refurbished Mobile Learning Centres are equipped with high-tech, multi-media equipment including a DVD player, ceiling stars and a transparent anatomical mannequin affectionately known as "TAM". Designed to be a place of magic, intrigue and fun, the Life Education Mobile Learning Centres combine special effects and interactive elements which engage students to challenge their values and attitudes, expand on their knowledge and develop skills to help them to make the best choices for a healthy future.
