The Healthy Harold Life Education Van can't visit Albury district schools just now, but a new online program aims to fill some of that gap.
In response to the coronavirus crisis, Life Education NSW has launched a virtual offering of tools to support schools and families.
Life Education Online provides a range of lessons exploring healthy eating, personal safety, physical activity, cybersafety and the impact of alcohol and other drugs.
Life Education NSW chief executive Jonathon Peatfield said children were living through a time of great uncertainty.
"This year has seen drought, fire and floods; now we are facing broad community upheaval due to the COVID-19 crisis," he said.

"Our mission - empowering our children and young people to make safer and healthier choices through
education - has never been more important than it is now.
"Coping with stress and anxiety, overcoming isolation from friends and family, staying physically healthy and active, communicating respectfully and openly, we need to focus on all of these things and more."
The program is available to all NSW schools while parents and children can access free online resources at lifeeducation.org.au.
