Health Educational Program

Recommended for Early Childhood to Grade 3

Introducing Australia’s favourite children’s character  who is on a mission to teach all young people about safety, first aid, how to be brave and manage our emotions and how to be a good friend! Harry Helper is his name and he is every child’s best friend. He is fun, outgoing, trustworthy and is always willing to help his friends learn about the really important skills to stay well and happy in life!

Hooray for Harry as he has seen that to be a good friend and someone that is part of a community that we not only need to know how to be safe, what to do if someone is hurt but that we also need to learn how to cope with situations the might scare us and help others do the same. This means that not only do we need to learn the skills to look afters ourselves physically that we also need to do this mentally, which means caring for our body inside and out. Join us on our fun adventures and invite Harry Helper into your centre, your school and your family today!
