ALCOHOL ABUSE COMMITTEE - Wednesday 9 February 1994 KATHERINE MEETING Mr ORTMANN: Yes, but have you been through the program? Mr MCCARTHY: You ought to go and have a look. When it is at one of your local schools, go and sit in on a session because they would love to have you. Personally, I have a lot of confidence in Life Education. Mr POOLE: The kids really like it. Mr ORTMANN: And they look for it to come back next year. Ms MAYNARD: The Life Education caravan goes through the main centres, but does it go off ... Mr POOLE: Yes. Mr MCCARTHY: They have a new 4-wheel drive that goes out to remote communities. Mr POOLE: They also have suitcase packs for some of the more inaccessible areas. They can put everything in 4 suitcases and off they go. Ms MAYNARD: A child would see this program once a year? Mr POOLE: Not in every community. They have only started going to the more remote areas in the last couple of years. In the larger areas, the schools probably would be visited at least twice a year. Ms MAYNARD: I know Katherine is once a year. Mr MCCARTHY: It is once a year in most cases. They are very unlikely to get two a year. It was fairly stretched in Darwin. Basically, they were going once a year to a school. Mr POOLE: It is a good program. Thank you very much, Gibbie. 6
