Club Meeting 27 March

  • Diane Henderson has spent a career in teaching, retiring last year as a teacher at Ohaeawai School. But having retired, Diane is now busier than ever - as chair of the local Life Education Trust. This week she took time out from her busy schedule to talk about Life Education in the Far North.

  • Life Education Trust was founded 30 years ago by Trevor Grice and uses mobile classrooms that visit children in schools. Its programme aims to raise children's self esteem, emphasising that everyone is unique and encouraging them to make healthy decisions about lifestyle and diet. Its mascot mascot Harold the Giraffe is instantly recognisable.

  • Diane told us that Life Education Trust receives no government money and relies on the community and philanthropic trusts. Each trust throughout the country needs to raise enough money each year to pay for its mobile classroom and to employ an educator.

  • In the Far North the educator has just left, so a new one will have to be found and then trained. That means the mobile classroom will probably not be seen until term three. But with an area from Te Hapua to Dargaville to cover it will be busy thereafter - including around Kaikohe. For more information about Life Education Trust go to https://www.lifeeducation.org.nz/
