Harold the Giraffe and the Life Education Van visited Tooborac Primary School last week with some fun activities to help reinforce teachings on a range of life skills.
Principal James Tenison-Woods said this year’s lessons, ‘Harold’s Diary’ and ‘Harold’s Heroes’, included recognising bullying and the qualities of a good friend, healthy food choices and safety with medicines and drugs.
‘‘It is an engaging way for students to pack a lot of learning into one session,’’ he said.
‘‘I believe that it is helpful for students to hear these messages from a range of sources to make the message stick.
‘‘Students love the sessions and look forward to seeing Harold’s apartment when they are in grade six.’’
