Life Education Bus - A message from Harold


24 March 2020

A message from Life Education - Harold.

We want to let you know about the things we can offer to support you in the vital work of looking after children’s physical and mental health in the months ahead.

Harold – our happy, healthy giraffe mascot and a favourite with children – will be posting a daily blog: Harold’s Daily Diary – starting next Monday, 23rd March at 9am! Each day he’ll be giving children positive, fun messages about what he’s doing to stay happy and healthy while he’s off school, separated from his friends. He’ll invite the children to join in activities which will be family-friendly, varied and tailored to all ages, follow his Daily Plan and download and fill in their own version.

We are doing this because we know that having a routine and structure are key to providing children with security at this challenging time. Topics will include:

·         Taking regular exercise

·         Being creative

·         Helping others

·         Connecting with others – in ways that are safe

·         Mindfulness – learning to enjoy the moment, here and now.

Parents and carers can follow @CoramLifeEd (Twitter) or @CoramLifeEducation (Facebook) each day to see what Harold is up to!
