Our Educators


Nicole Fonua

Nicole’s time spent helping with her son’s classroom inspired her to obtain her Bachelor of Education. Now a Mum of two with over 13 years of teaching experience, Nicole joined Life Education Trust as an Educator and has embarked on her 6th year with our Trust. Her journey with the Trust has exposed her to the multi-faceted role that Educators play in daily operations while delivering our message to children throughout Auckland Central.

“Building relationships with the Auckland Central children and communities while passing on Harold’s messages of how special and unique we all are and enabling children to make informed Health choices, strengthens my belief in what an amazing job Life Education does within New Zealand.

Sylvia Parke

Originally from Ireland, Sylvia has been living in New Zealand for the past 15 years. Her husband, Tony, is a Kiwi and works as a plumber and gasfitter in Ellerslie. 

Sylvia has an Honours degree in Environmental Science and a Grad Dip. in Primary Teaching, teaching at St Joseph's Schools in Otahuhu for five years.

After seeing how excited her students used to get before and during a visit to the Life Ed classroom, and how the messages taught resonated with the children long after their visit, she knew this was something she wanted to be a part of in the future.

"I feel very privileged to have been chosen as an Educator for Central Auckland and I can’t wait to meet the children and teachers in this area and get to know Harold better, of course.”
