The Healthy Life Education Programme
The Healthy Life Education Programme is an internationally recognized healthy education and drug abuse prevention programme, with the aim to raise awareness of primary school students on the benefits of healthy life style and dangers of drug abuse. In order to achieve the goals of drug abuse prevention, it started to operate in September 2000 and is implemented by Drug Abuse Prevention Division of Social Welfare Bureau.
Children aged 5-12
The programme includes Cantonese and English classes for kindergarten 3 and primary school students as well as Special Needs Programme.
The programme focuses on four main areas: body knowledge, food nutrition, drug education and social skills. The programme was designed, according to the need of children's growth, to nurture gradually the students' concept of healthy life and the correct attitude of taking drugs. When facing drug temptation, they are full of confidence to say"NO" to drugs.
It includes illuminated modules, body systems, a talking brain, the giraffe "Harold" (programme mascot) that can sing, audiovisual equipment, etc. It is also equipped with Augmented Reality (AR) and Kinect teaching technology systems to bring a new experience for students.
Under educator's guidance, students can learn happily through games, discussions, role play, etc. The programme builds up students' problem solving and social resistance skills, help them to establish a healthy life style and stay away from drugs.
We provide Student's Workbook and Teacher's Manuel to reinforce student's knowledge.
