Life education for regions’ kids
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.
