$290 can create a new Healthy Harold puppet to engage thousands of children in learning about healthy choices.

Our Programs

At Life Education, we deliver a range of broadly focused health and drug education programs. Our programs adopt a sequential year-on-year, age-specific approach and addresses a range of issues in response to school or class needs. We use our mascot, Healthy Harold, to deliver drug and alcohol education with a friendly and memorable face.


Having Life Education as a consistent provider of drug and alcohol education throughout the schooling years is important in reinforcing and evolving young people’s thoughts and attitudes.
