Life Education

Life Education New South Wales is a community-based, independent organisation at the front line of positive and preventative drug and health education.

Approximately 350,000 children and 30,000 families take part in the preschool, primary and secondary programs each year. Helping young people make informed decisions about drugs and their health is at the heart of the program, which is driven by the popular Life Education mascot Harold the giraffe.

Specialist educators utilising their experience and training work with schools to develop programs to support the provision of best-practice drug education. Sessions are age specific and sequential with written and electronic resources provided to support both students and teachers in the delivery of ongoing drug education in their classroom. A visit to the mobile Life Education van facilitates the development of students' knowledge and skills to identify risks and make informed decisions.

Students in Kindergarten, Year 2, Year 4 and Year 6 undertake the program each year.
