For more than 30 years, Life Education Queensland together with Healthy Harold have been at the forefront of children’s health and wellbeing. Each year we empower more than 200,000 children across the state with the skills and knowledge they need to keep themselves healthy and safe.
In partnership with more than 878 preschools and primary schools, our health education program is highly regarded by the teachers, parents and communities that we serve. Explore Life Education Queensland’s impact below.
As the saying goes, it takes a village to raise a child. It’s an even bigger job to raise a healthy and resilient child. It’s probably the greatest responsibility any of us, as adults, will ever face.
So what does healthy mean? It’s physical, it’s social (relationships) and it’s emotional (mental health). Children need support in all three areas of health if they’re to flourish in life.
We know that children don’t just make decisions based on knowledge. They’re surrounded by influences that also shape their attitudes and behaviour. Their school, their parents and family, their friends and peer group, social media, are just some of the factors that affect the choices that children make – for better or for worse.
So providing life education to a child isn’t something you can do in an hour, or a day, or even in a year – it’s an ongoing commitment to supporting and educating children as they grow. That’s why at Life Education Queensland we work hand-in-hand with schools, parents and the wider community, year after year.
