Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

EV­ERY­ONE’S favourite gi­raffe Healthy Harold will host the in­au­gu­ral Life Education fam­ily fun day at Coly­ton on Sun­day.

The event will see the Life Education head­quar­ters open to the pub­lic for the first time.

Chil­dren and adults alike can cel­e­brate with free food, drinks, rides and show­bags.

Kids will even be able to en­joy an in­ter­ac­tive ses­sion in the Healthy Harold vans.

There will be plenty of en­ter­tain­ment on the day, with face paint­ing and jump­ing cas­tles, and even ran­dom spot prizes will be on of­fer.

The Life Education NSW state head­quar­ters first opened in Coly­ton in 1987.

Life Education chief ex­ec­u­tive Kel­lie Sloane said the or­gan­i­sa­tion was ex­cited to fi­nally open its doors to the pub­lic.

“Healthy Harold is such a pos­i­tive and iconic charac- ter in the lives of so many chil­dren. We want to share the good work that we do with the wider com­mu­nity,” Mrs Sloane said.

In NSW, more than 280,000 stu­dents in more than 1200 schools take part in Life Education’s preschool, pri­mary and sec­ondary pro­grams each year.

The pro­grams aim to em­power chil­dren and young peo­ple to make safer and health­ier choices.
