Home / Our Mission
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.
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.
