Providing education for life
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.’’
