Today children and adolescents face a lot of challenges, including: obesity, substance use, mental health and well-being and bullying. The decisions we make as children can dramatically affect how we live our lives in the future – and this is why Life Education exists. Through education we help students to understand how decisions they make today can affect their future health and well-being.
See how these types of societal issues shape our five teaching strands.
Enabling children to reach their full potential.
To educate and inspire generations to embrace positive choices for a healthy mind and body.
Our philosophy is the essence of everything that we do, our three philosophical principles are:
You are unique – we aim to make each child comfortable with their identity. In the whole world there will never be another you. You are unique, you are special. It's OK to have freckles, be tall or short, have big ears or nose, different coloured skin or hair. We keep reinforcing to little children "you are very special."
The human body is magnificent –we show children the magnificence of the human body – its sensory, circulatory and digestive systems, showing how the body functions and what its needs are – food, oxygen and water. We illustrate how the earth provides these needs and teach how we should protect our internal and external environments.
We need to support and respect each other – because of the delicate and complex nature of life itself, we need to support and respect each other and every other person, regardless of sex, race, religion or beliefs.
