Gold for health ini­tia­tive

Cockburn Gazette - - OPINION -

NORTH Lake Se­nior Cam­pus was among the first schools in the state to be recog­nised for its work tar­get­ing im­proved health and well­be­ing.

The lo­cal cam­pus scored a gold award for com­plet­ing Chang­ing Health Act­ing To­gether (CHAT), an ini­tia­tive de­vel­oped and funded by School Drug Ed­u­ca­tion and Road Aware.

The pro­gram in­te­grates road safety, al­co­hol and drug ed­u­ca­tion into class­room learn­ing and other school prac­tices. Thirty-eight schools from metro and re­gional WA were recog­nised at the 2017 CHAT Achieve­ment Awards with many show­ing road safety and drug ed­u­ca­tion work done by stu­dents and staff.
