School education program overview


Never before has gambling been so
heavily promoted and accessible especially through sport. This makes it
feel like a normal part of the game and harder for your students to recognize the
potential harm. We want them to love the game not the odds. The school program
helps support students to develop healthy and informed attitudes. We have
face-to-face sessions, units of curriculum and it’s all about giving
students a heads up. Our face to face sessions are freely available for
teachers, parents and students. In our senior student workshop, we explore
what’s making betting feel more normal, the limited chances of winning, the risks
involved, how to know if it’s becoming a concern and where to find help. These
topics are also investigated throughout our curriculum based units available
online for years 10 to 12 including VCAL whilst online take a look at our school
gambling policy template and loads of information for teachers and parents
including videos, quizzes and newsletter articles. We’re here to help you support
students to know the facts and build resilience to harm in the future. The
session we just had was very useful. We get to learn stuff that we didn’t know
about gambling because if you get too attached to it you’re going to lose
money it has a very limited chance of you winning a bet. Help your students
love the game and not the odds. Go to lovethegame.vic.gov.au
