Team Harold

Join Team Harold and help raise funds for Marlborough Life Education Trust. By joining Team Harold you will be challenged to collect $150 in sponsorship from your family, friends, workmates.

Who we are and what we do? Life Education is a charitable trust that delivers a health programme to children in preschool, primary and intermediate schools. We build self-esteem and teach children the marvel of the human body so they can make informed decisions and lead a healthy life. The Marlborough Trust is completely locally funded, and all funds raised stay within our community. Over the last two years our Team Harold competitors have raised over $20,000 for Life Education. A fantastic effort!

So, come on…join a winning team. If you are keen to join Team Harold please contact us at 

Life Education in the Marlborough region

Since commencing in May 2006, Marlborough’s mobile classroom has visited some 99% of the primary and intermediate schools in the Marlborough region, including Rai Valley, the Marlborough Sounds, Kaikoura, and in 2010 we extended into the Hurunui region. In Marlborough, our programme is dependent on the support of a small but vital group of local sponsors whose contributions by way of funding services help us deliver the programme to schools at a highly subsidised rate so that all pupils have the opportunity to attend.

Our people

Chairperson: James Ryan

James has been a member of Life Education Trust Marlborough since 2015 and Chair since 2017. He is a graduate from one of the first Life Education Trusts over 30 years ago and when the opportunity to help Harold and benefit the Marlborough community came up, he jumped at the chance. Marlborough is a wonderful place to raise a family and has a great deal over everyone. James has been a secondary school teacher since 2003 and is Assistant Principal at one of the local schools.

Educator: Genevieve McDonald

Gen has lived in Marlborough for 30 years, raising her two daughters here.

Originally from Southland, Gen and her family love the rural life and the friends and family they have in Marlborough. Gen and her family love being outdoors and on the water in the Marlborough Sounds or anywhere in our beautiful country. They also love getting away in their bus, which is a favourite pastime.

Gen has been teaching a while now and has enjoyed being in many different schools, but Life Ed is where she feels the most passionate. She believes that Life Ed are giving children the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in life. The messages we share with children are lifelong lessons that will enable them to be amazing citizens in the future.

Harold Club
