Life Education


Our vision: Inspiring tamariki and rangatahi to make positive choices.

Life Education empowers rangatahi with the knowledge and confidence to make healthy decisions for themselves. 

Our vision is that rangatahi will reach their full potential and our philosophy focuses on the well-being and mental health of rangatahi.

Life Education Trust Canterbury supports the health education needs of more than 24,000 rangatahi every year. Our specialist health teachers work with schools through a shared planning approach to support the individual needs of rangatahi in their community.

Our specialist mobile classrooms create a unique and engaging environment ensuring every young person from the Hurunui through to Rakaia has the same opportunity and support.

Life Education in Canterbury

Here in Canterbury we’ve continued to evolve to support rangatahi needs over the last decade and respond to school’s request for support. We now have generations that fondly remember our mascot Harold the Giraffe and positive experiences from our work in schools. We’re a registered charity, we are not funded by the Government and for more than 30 years we have partnered with the Canterbury community to support generations of young people to reach their full potential.
