Life Education Trust Taranaki has been successfully delivering the Life Education programme to empower children to make healthy choices.

In 2018 we visited 84 schools, taught 1,128 lessons and saw 12,256 children. Our dedicated Trustees continue to provide fundraising activities in order to allow more children to be educated by LET Taranaki.

Our Educators

Megan Lilley

Megan has over 25 years of teaching experience, both in New Zealand and England, mostly with intermediate aged students. She is Taranaki born and bred and enjoys being active outdoors. Due to a passion for health, physical education and student wellbeing, Megan joined Life Education in 2014. She loves building relationships with the many wonderful Taranaki schools, with the aim of working together to empower rangatahi to make positive life choices. 

Donna Taunt

Donna has been teaching all around Taranaki for the last 15 years both as a reliever and in contracted positions. A couple of years a go Donna began a music programme which she now teaches once a fortnight in Eltham and hopes to get other schools on board too.

Donna loves the philosophy, the positivity and the knowledge about the brain that she has gained since becoming a Life Ed Educator. She loves that it has also exposed her to strategies which she has been able to use at home with her own children too.
