Welcome to Island Health Learning!
This organisation has been created to meet the growing need in our community for health education that is delivered in a way which is professional, warm and easy to understand.
Meet Wendy, your facilitator
After studying and working in child care, youth work, and alcohol and other drug rehabilitation, I returned to study at The University of Sydney and completed my Bachelor of Nursing in 2000. The past 21 years have seen me working with adults, children and families in child care, hospitals, family homes and detention centres in Australia and overseas.
After moving to Tasmania, I worked in clinical nursing, community services, disability services and school-based health education. Since creating Island Health Learning and The EveryBody! Program in 2016, my busiest year saw me speak with almost 10,000 students in public and independent schools throughout Tasmania. It has been an incredible journey with an exciting new addition coming to the program late 2021.
Island Health Learning Programs
I am excited to introduce The EveryBody! Program to Tasmania as well as share the SoSAFE! message with the broader community. The EveryBody! Program is a health, relationship and sexuality education program for primary school students, teachers, parents and carers.
Whether you are a parent, carer, teacher or just someone who wants to better understand and connect with children and youth, there is something here for everyone.
I welcome feedback and am very happy to modify programs to meet your specific needs.
