We’re excited to announce a new team to develop and deliver targeted place-based programs in areas of disadvantage. Tackling obesity and overweight, bullying and mental health are the priorities for this new Social Impact team, adding to the great work that our educators across the state are already doing each day in schools.
The team’s biggest priority next year will be the continued roll out of the highly successful and innovative Healthy Eats program, a whole-of-school approach to increasing fruit and vegetable consumption among primary school children.
As part of our social impact strategy, community development officers will support schools in key regions including North Queensland, Logan, Ipswich and Northern Gold Coast. They will enhance the work of our existing program educators, support schools to co-design solutions, deliver innovative nutrition sessions to children, provide teachers with valuable resources and form partnerships with local organisations to increase social impact.
After 34 years of Life Education in Queensland, we’re excited by the possibilities to work alongside schools and communities to make an even bigger difference in the lives of children.
