Primary school students will have access to a Touch Screen to help them learn about healthy living after the Federal Member for Page announced a grant to Life Education’s Mobile Learning Centre.
“Children are increasingly exposed to drugs and alcohol through the sections of the media, as well as bullying,” he said.
“Through its Mobile Learning Centre and Healthy Harold, Life Education delivers positive preventative health programs that motivate, encourage and empower primary school aged children to make smart choices.
“It is great to announce a grant of more than $6000 to install a new ESmart Touch Screen that can be used to help teach this message to the almost 10,000 primary students in our community.
“This will help students make smart life choices for a healthy future, free from harms associated with drugs misuse and poor health choices.”
Life Education NSW chief executive Kellie Sloane said that the support of the Federal Government has been vital in enabling Life Education, through the installation of the new Esmart touch screen monitor, to teach local children to be healthy and active.
“We are very fortunate to have the support of Mr Hogan and many Members of Parliament,” she said.
“I encourage schools throughout the community to take up the opportunity, and make use of this important educational facility, by participating in the Healthy Harold program.”
