Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

The Life Ed­u­ca­tion Trust’s mo­bile class­room, with ed­u­ca­tor Bec Kaukau and Harold the Gi­raffe, vis­ited Lin­den School last week.

The trust pro­vides in­for­ma­tion to pri­mary school­child­ren on life choices they will face, in­clud­ing drugs and al­co­hol.

Tawa Ro­tary pres­i­dent Pat Waite said the Life Ed­u­ca­tion Trust pro­vided in­valu­able in­for­ma­tion and answers for young peo­ple con­sid­er­ing the choices they have ahead.

He said Tawa Ro­tary was pleased to again pro­vide $9000 to the trust, money raised at its an­nual book fair.

‘‘ Young peo­ple are our fu­ture,’’ he said.

Al­lan Nichols said the North Welling­ton Trust mo­bile class­room vis­ited more than 6000 chil­dren at 35 schools each year, and re­lied com­pletely on do­na­tions, in­clud­ing from lo­cal ro­tary clubs.

The chil­dren have fun while they learn.

‘‘Look at their happy faces,’’ Nichols said.

‘‘ They en­joy the hu­mour and fun, par­tic­u­larly with Harold the Gi­raffe, but they are also re­ally look­ing for hon­est ad­vice and in­for­ma­tion on life­style choices.’’
