Since its inception almost 40 years ago, Life Education Central Queensland has been committed to promoting the health and wellbeing of children across the region. With their iconic and beloved mascot Healthy Harold imparting crucial life skills and knowledge to more than 7,000 children annually.

Thanks to the support of Squadron Energy, Healthy Harold hit the road in Central Queensland last week, hosting health education workshops at Clarke Creek Primary State School and Marlborough State School.

Partnering with more than 40 early education centres and primary schools, Life Education Central Queensland has cemented its position as a trusted provider of health education programs.

However, due to the size and scope of the region and ongoing operating costs, Healthy Harold relies on community support to ensure this vital service can reach as many students as possible, particularly in regional communities.

Emily Taylor, who is the Secretary of Life Education Central Queensland said this support from Squadron Energy was essential in ensuring Healthy Harold could hit the road in Central Queensland and deliver his important wellbeing programs to regional students.

“The support from Squadron Energy has enabled our team, which is managed by volunteers, to bring our iconic Mobile Learning Centre and specialist educators to Clarke Creek for the first time in a number of years.”

“It’s vital that all students, regardless of their location have access to our program, which extends beyond the classroom, resonating with teachers, parents, and communities alike.”

Squadron Energy is committed to the local community in Clarke Creek and the wider region and is always looking for ways to make a positive and lasting impact on the wellbeing of the community.

From supporting BreastScreen Queensland to deliver over 20 vital health screenings at the recent Marlborough Show, to sponsoring the lifesaving work of the RACV CapRescue helicopter service.

“By supporting these important initiatives, we are investing in the future health and wellbeing of our communities. We are thrilled to support Life Education Central Queensland in delivering this program to the local community,” Clarke Creek Wind Farm’s Community Relations Advisor Patrice Willoughby said.

“As part of this sponsorship, Squadron Energy has provided support by subsidising the cost of the Life Education program for 1,000 students across seven schools in Central Queensland – including Clarke Creek Primary School.”

“The Healthy Harold program is a fun and interactive way to encourage healthy habits amongst our students, delivering knowledge and skills they need to make informed choices and lead healthier lives.”
