Our Story - Life Education

Our Story

The Life Education journey began in Canterbury in 1988 in a static classroom. Today we support four mobile classrooms. In 2022, Life Education Canterbury visited more than 20,000 children across 82 different schools. Life Education is a not-for-profit organisation and receives no Government funding to support its programme.

We work with schools to reach children through the Health Science topic that is part of the New Zealand Curriculum. What we teach is always evolving – as are the needs of children. Our programmes are delivered in state-of-the-art mobile classrooms by Educators who are qualified teachers. The mobile classrooms are fitted with technology that provides a unique learning environment through audio-visual materials, interactive models (including a talking brain) and Harold, the Giraffe.
