Ways to Get Involved

Growing Good Friends

For Early Primary to Year 2

Harold battles to figure out what to give his grandma for her birthday, until his friends Boots and Red, step in and offer some good ideas. This animated story highlights the role that positive relationships play in health and wellbeing.


This module connects the ideas of building a veggie garden and growing good friends. Students join Harold in investigating healthy lifestyle choices that impact both their health and emotional wellbeing. This includes the role that positive relationships play in their wellbeing.

Life Ed programs are not just a visit, they’re a 4-step student pathway!

So make use of the whole multimodal pathway… the pre visit lesson; the Life Ed Educator visit; the 2 post visit lessons, the booster lessons and the parent communication.

The key learning areas covered include:
  • Recognising how nutrition and physical activity contributes to health
  • Exploring health messages and advertising influences
  • Identifying qualities and attributes of good friends
  • People in our network who can support and help us
