We work with teachers and schools to deliver tailored face-to-face health and wellbeing education through a modular program.

Life Ed offers 12 purpose built, issue specific and age-appropriate primary school modules designed to engage, inspire and empower students. These modules are delivered face to face and cover a range of topics across the areas of physical health, safety and social and emotional wellbeing. The Life Ed program is designed to be integrated into the primary curriculum and all modules are all aligned to the Australian Curriculum Health and Physical Education Learning Area and other Learning Areas and General Capabilities

We provide a flexible and customisable approach

Life Ed works closely with schools to understand the needs of the students, and provide a tailored approach to health education.

You can pick the topics you want covered and have them delivered in a time that suits your school.

We deliver a fun and engaging learning experience

Our research has shown us that memorable learning happens when expertise is combined with a fun and engaging experience.

We have a holistic approach to preventative health

We engage the entire school community; students, teachers and parents. It's an approach designed to impact the health and well being of Australia.

Our program is most effective when students are engaged before and after a visit from Life Ed. To make this possible, we’ve designed pre and post digital lessons for teachers to use in the classroom and resources for parents to follow up at home.

Your Life Ed school booking includes: 

  • A pre-visit consultation to understand the needs of your learners and customise the learning outcomes to suit your class
  • Your choice of curriculum aligned module
  • Your choice of delivery method that is available in your area and best suits your needs
  • A specialist Life Ed Educator to deliver the lesson to your students
  • A unique, impactful and memorable experience for your students
  • Pre and post visit digital teacher lessons to facilitate with your students in your classroom to deepen the learning outcomes.  
  • Customised parent information sessions. 

How do our school visits work?

Life Ed program sessions are delivered in our Mobile or Pop Up Classrooms or 'virtually' by our specialist educators.

Health education is key to preventing harms associated with the misuse of alcohol and other drugs. Our approach to drug education is building year on year with age and stage appropriate content and delivery methods, which are linked to both the Australian Curriculum and the NSW PDHPE Syllabus. In preschool and lower-middle primary school children learn about safety around medicines, in upper primary, our Decisions module teaches children about the effects that legal and illegal drugs have on the body and our Face The Facts module extends the learning for secondary school students.

Relevant modules:

- Decisions
- Mind Your Medicine
- On The Case

Healthy Harold loves to be active, and so do we! Not limited by our Mobile Learning Centres, our educators encourage all participants (including the teachers) to get physically active during our sessions. This helps students to understand the difference being active, or not, makes to our health.

We do not strictly dictate that children should exercise (program-driven) or play sport (as barriers may prevent some from taking part) specifically. Everyone can choose to be active, however, in a way that suits their needs and situation.

Relevant modules:

- My Body Matters
- Ready Steady Go!
