"The day Life Education van came to my school, it changed my life"

Life Education has helped millions of Australian children for over 40 years. Jimmy Morrison was one of those children.

Jimmy was seemingly like every other young child. He had a family who cared about him, and enjoyed playing with his friends and younger brother. But there was a dark secret that Jimmy carried with him. For nearly a year, Jimmy was being sexually assaulted by a family friend.

He sensed that what was happening was wrong, but he didn’t have the words to ask for help, or even know what to call it. He felt alone and scared. That is until the Life Education van came to his school.
Sitting with the rest of his classmates, Jimmy learned about the right to your body—that “Your body is nobody’s body but yours.”

Jimmy’s story is only one example of how Life Ed Queensland is empowering people to stay safe and live healthy lives.

Katie And Son

Katie's story

As a solo parent, Katie says she feels the pressure to try to juggle it all and make sure she is teaching her son Jacob everything he needs to know. After a traumatic family experience, she’s glad Life Ed is there to help reinforce the right messages about respectful relationships, cyberbullying and consent.

Macelroy Family

Andrew's story

Gaming addiction, online grooming, online bullying and too much screen time… it’s a lot for parents to navigate in our always-on digital world. Busy father-of-four, Andrew is grateful the Life Ed program helped his son Murphy gain tools to stay cybersafe and aware, and learn how to balance his screen time with healthy green time.

For over 40 years, Life Education has been committed to ensuring that no child has to face adult sized problems alone.

Life Education was born from the vision of our founder Ted Noffs, who dedicated his life to improving the lives of young Australians – especially those most in need. As a result of his outreach work at the Wayside Crisis Centre in Kings Cross, Ted decided to create a national preventative health education program for all Australian young people. Life Education started in 1979 and we continue to commit to the achievement of Ted’s vision, so that Aussie kids can develop the knowledge, skills and confidence to face life’s biggest challenges. Putting this belief into action alongside our mascot and Australian icon, Healthy Harold, we now engage more than 700,000 children every year. With your support, we will reach even more in the future.
