Hunter Life Education program to focus on obesity, drug use and more
March 27th, 2018

Program: Adopt-a-School

Hunter Life Education is one of our seven successful 2017/ 2018 Ansvar Community Education Program grant recipients. It is a community based, independent organisation working in partnership with schools to ensure Life Education programs are delivered to children in the Hunter region. The grant requested of $47,112 will be used to target schools specifically below the national average on the ICSEA score.

The Adopt-a-School program will provide the schools targeted with access to LE Educators, delivering classroom modules, focusing on areas such as obesity, drug use, the impact of alcohol consumption, decisions, and bullying.

It is anticipated that the cost of $26 per student covers the costs of the Educator, resources and materials for the school, van transportation and program development. Over 1800 students will benefit from the modules on offer.

Key Objectives:

-Provide at least one LE module to every enrolled student in the nominated schools.
-To empower young people to make safer, healthier life decisions
-To combat anti-social behaviour in the community.

Expected outcomes from the program

Hunter Life Education want to ensure that evert student enrolled in the nominated schools receive at least one LE module. Through the education provided the students gain skills they can use to help them navigate their way through their formative years.

Participants are expected to have the tools to then make informed and educated decisions increasing the chance to make healthier lifestyle choices.

We had such a great day at last weeks 'Reach Beyond Golf Day' that raises funds for a medical clinic in Bangladesh for the Rohingya refugees. Thank you to all the organisers for putting on such a great day and also for the passionate presentation to explain the amazing work that's been done with the funds raised.

We had to share these wonderful words from the Lighthouse Foundation's Michelle Michie, Philanthropy Manager. The Lighthouse Foundation were one of our 2016/ 2017 Community Education Program Grant Recipients.....

“We are immensely grateful for this support which has been crucial in life changing work which has helped so many young homeless girls get off to a healthy start with their newborns. I wish you could experience what I do, when I see these girls graduate to independent living with a strong attachment to their child. Without this help, so many of them would not have been able to manage, and would have given up their baby into the state care system.

Thank you for the partnership, and the tangible feeling that the Ansvar team truly cared about homeless children and young people, and that you had their back.”
