Healthy Harold is alive and well thanks to a new corporate sponsor - iSelect. It has committed to a three-year $1.5 million partnership with Life Education so it can keep working in school communities across the country.
And, the Life Education van is currently parked up at Singleton Public School. Educator Silvia Martinez says we are non-profit organisation so this sponsorship is “a great lifeline”. She was running through a brand new program aimed at Kindergarten students when The Argus popped in for a chat on Friday afternoon. The module is called ‘Harold’s Friend Ship’ and explores the qualities of a good friend, feelings and emotions, early warning signs, and safe and unsafe situations.
Ms Martinez says it focuses on communication and being the best person you can be. With interactive contents, it certainly engaged the students who were quick to respond to questions and keen to get involved. Life Education and SPS would also like to thank the Singleton Lions Club for their generous sponsorship.
