HEALTHY Harold looked on as NSW Treasurer Andrew Constance announced a $1 million boost for Life Education during a visit to Danebank Anglican School for Girls, Hurstville.

Mr Constance said the extra funding, to be provided if the Coalition was re-elected, would allow expansion of the preventative drug, alcohol and health education program.

"Life Education delivers programs to over 320,000 students at 1400 schools across NSW, but some communities miss out," he said.

"The Baird government is determined to ensure every young person gets the support they need to make safe and healthy decisions."

Mr Constance said many people would remember Healthy Harold and the Life Education van visiting their school.

"The additional support will fund school visits on the Central Coast, North Coast, south-west Sydney, western Sydney and rural and remote areas," he said.
