If a Life Education Educator and our mascot Healthy Harold came to visit your child’s school today they may have participated in the ‘Growing Good Friends’ session.
Growing Good Friends is one of our Life Education Modules. It is a fun interactive learning experience that aims to empower children to make safer and healthier choices.
Children will have enjoyed animated stories, engaged in hands-on activities, sung songs, and taken part in discussion and problem solving with their peers.
Growing Good Friends explores what contributes to positive health and wellbeing - such as physical activity, nutrition, understanding health messages, personal safety, and positive relationships.
Clearly aligned to the Australian Curriculum, this module helps children understand that a healthy lifestyle is an important step towards making positive healthy choices now and into the future.
The learning also continues in the classroom with their teacher, with the help of a range of interactive online resources, and a fun-filled student workbook.
We also encourage you to extend your child’s learning, by working with them to explore the activities and to start the conversations listed on these three downloadable posters.
This resource also includes two short interviews with Anthony Tassone, Pharmacist and President of the Pharmacy Guild of Australia (Victoria), and a range of recommended links to further information about the topics covered in the Growing Good Friends module.
