Far North

Far North new truck

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.

Our wonderful group of volunteers help keep the classroom on the road by holding regular fundraisers, promoting Life Education Trust messages at various events and occasions around the Far North and making sure all maintenance and repairs are up to date on the classroom and truck unit. 

As we travel a lot of kilometres across the Far North, often 2 or 3 schools in a week, we need to have drivers available and ready to move the classroom at all times. This is a huge ask and we are lucky to have the support of some wonderful retired people, firemen and logging companies to help ensure it reaches the right school at the right time.

We love meeting new people with new ideas to help us, so if you would like to become involved with an amazing group of people do not hesitate to call or email the Chairperson at any time: Diane Henderson - dianesh50@gmail.com or 021 407015

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.

Latest news

Welcome to Mandy Morrogh, our new educator who began her journey in Term 3 in the Dargaville area. Mandy and Harold have already made some fabulous friends as you can see from the pics below.

We are very excited that we have funding to update our classroom exterior, this will happen during the Christmas holidays. We love the design we have as it depicts all the wonderful areas of the Far North that we visit so we have opted to replace it with the same design. 

We are all working very hard to get the money together for our classroom upgrade - let us hope this will become a reality in the not too distant future.
