Primary - Safety Rules! - Year 1 / Year 2

If a Life Education Educator and our mascot Healthy Harold came to visit your child’s school today they may have participated in the ‘Safety rules!’ session, as part of the Life Education Program.

The Life Education Program is a fun interactive learning experience that aims to empower children to make safer and healthier choices.

Working with one of our highly experienced educators, and our loveable mascot, Healthy Harold, they have enjoyed animated stories, engaged in hands-on activities, sung songs, and taken part in discussion and problem solving with their peers.

What is ‘Safety rules!’?

The module they have completed is called Safety rules! It investigates safety in a range of situations and environments, people and places to go to for help, and how friends can care for and support each other.

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.

What can you do at home

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.
