The Life Education Trust’s mobile classroom, with Educator Bec Kaukau and Harold the Giraffe visited Linden School in Nov 2014. The Trust provides information to primary school children on a range of life choices they will face which include those of drugs, alcohol etc.
Included in the photo with some very lively children are Bec Kaukau, Pat Waite, President of Tawa Rotary Club, and Allan Nichols, Chairman of the North Wellington Life Education Trust.
Pat Waite said the Life Education Trust provides invaluable information and answers to young people as they think about the choices that they have ahead. He said Tawa Rotary was pleased to again provide $9000 to the Trust, which was raised at the Club’s annual Book Fair. “Young people are our whole future”, he said.
Allan Nichols said the North Wellington Trust mobile classroom visits over 6000 children at 35 schools each year, and relies completely on donations received, including from Rotary Clubs in the area. The children have fun while they learn. “ Look at their happy faces” he 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 ahead”.
