Overview

The Life Education Trust Far North was set up in 1991 with the prime objective of delivering the Life Education programme to the children in the Far North region.

The Trust is reaching primary and intermediate children in schools from Towai to Cape Reinga.

The Trustees work very hard fundraising by way of catering, raffles, stocktaking, auctions etc. The tractor unit to pull the mobile classroom is very generously donated and sponsored by Toll Holdings. The annual operating expenses, covering salary, all vehicle costs and administration related costs mean that the Trust has to raise annually approximately $100,000. All money raised in this area stays in the Far North. If you are in a position to make a donation to the Far North Life Education Trust, please contact us.

The Far North Trust has been fortunate to receive a couple of donations towards our classroom upgrade and we say a huge thank you to those businesses who have got us started in our fundraising campaign for this. We are very excited and committed to getting this project underway, as we know it will make a huge difference for the students of the Far North.

The Trustees and Educator of the Far North would like to say a huge thank you to New Era IT. New Era have kindly provided our educator with a brand new laptop for free. This has been a great saving to the Trust and come at a time when the old computer was about to die.

On Saturday 29th July we held our 2nd Fight for Life Ed in Kaikohe, Northland. This is not only a great event for our organisation, but a positive fun, safe event for Kaikohe and surrounding areas. We had an amazing group of people putting this event together and special thanks goes to Anthony from The Mill Gym in Kaikohe, Toa Gym Moerewa, our amazing Trustees and volunteers who supported us on the night, Brent the MC, Shane Jones, the wonderful judges and referees, Bouquets on Broadway, RSA Kaikohe for bar service and every other wonderful sponsor. We watched some fantastic fights, congratulations to all who participated, we thoroughly enjoyed the evening - Anthony tells us it is not going to be on next year, but maybe we can twist his arm!
