Life ed­u­ca­tion for re­gions’ kids

Isis Town and Country - - Kolan News -

ES­TAB­LISHED in 1987 in Queens­land, Life Ed­u­ca­tion is a health pro­mo­tion char­ity and the largest non-gov­ern­ment provider of health and drug ed­u­ca­tion to chil­dren and young peo­ple.

Michael Fawsitt, CEO of Life Ed­u­ca­tion, said the pro­grams were de­signed to em­power young peo­ple to make safer and health­ier choices. “Life Ed­u­ca­tion de­liv­ers high-qual­ity health ed­u­ca­tion pro­grams in a fun learn­ing style with age-ap­pro­pri­ate ma­te­rial,” he said.

Ed­u­ca­tor of Life Ed­u­ca­tion Kathy Bayliss said: “The pro­grams I teach to the stu­dents are healthy food choices and the dan­gers of cig­a­rettes and al­co­hol.

“Re­cent ini­tia­tives in­clude bCy­ber­wise, to help chil­dren stay safe online, and Talk about it, which teaches chil­dren about pu­berty, re­la­tion­ships and iden­tity.”

Life Ed­u­ca­tion Bund­aberg has de­liv­ered its vi­tal health and drug ed­u­ca­tion pro­grams to stu­dents in state and in­de­pen­dent schools across the re­gion for 26 years.

Thou­sands of Bund­aberg chil­dren have al­ready ben­e­fited from the Life Ed­u­ca­tion pro­grams, with an av­er­age of 8000 stu­dents par­tic­i­pat­ing each year.

Gin Gin Com­mu­nity Bank of Bendigo has kindly got on board by do­nat­ing funds to the pro­grams.

Biggenden schools will ben­e­fit from the fi­nan­cial sup­port of the Bendigo Bank and also the Life Ed­u­ca­tion pro­grams on of­fer to the schools.
