The health education programme is targeted at 4 – 11 year-olds and aims to help them make healthy choices in their life-styles. The programmes are delivered with a blend of audio-visual wizardry and good old-fashioned hands- on teaching aided by Harold the Giraffe (the hand puppet!). There is a good deal of interactive participation with the children. The various classes and their content vary according to age but are designed overall to: Educate children about the effects and risks associated with the use of drugs, including alcohol and tobacco; Contribute to life skills and health education programmes; Develop an understanding of the wonders of the body and how to look after it. Our children are facing ever- increasing pressures to and temptations to damage their health and their futures.
A recent youth survey found that by the age of 16, 57% of children regularly ‘binge drink’; 70% have smoked cigarettes ; 28% have smoked cannabis ; 10% have used solvents ; 15% are overweight. A spin-off to these statistics is an increase in anti-social behaviour resulting in 8 out of 10 crimes being drug-related.
Funds are urgently needed for the maintenance and refurbishment of this unit so that it can continue the good work educating children in our area. All funds donated to this page will be used for that purpose.
