TRUST FAST FACTS
The Life Education Trust is a specialist health resource for primary and
intermediate schools to support teachers in their delivery of the New
It began in New Zealand in 1987 and has expanded to 12 countries.
There are 39 Community Trusts throughout New Zealand, operating 44
mobile classrooms and employing nearly 50 specialist teachers.
There were 19 different modules and each child will attend two or three
lessons in the mobile classroom while it is at their local school.
Harold the giraffe was chosen as the Life Education Trust mascot so that
children could stand tall and be proud of who they are, just like Harold.
Waikaka Valley woman Jeanette McIntyre is passionate about the Life Education Trust. Diane Bishop reports.
Harold wasn't at school when I
was a kid. In fact, I would have
been about 13 when the gangly
giraffe, which is the Life Edu-
cation Trust's mascot, first star-
ted doing the rounds at primary
But Harold has played a major
part in Waikaka Valley woman
Jeanette McIntyre's life and those
of schoolchildren around the
country since the late 1980s.
''Children look up to him and they
can relate to him,'' Jeanette said.
Harold travels around the coun-
try with the Life Education
Trust's mobile classroom and
helps promote the healthy living
message -- as part of the national
health curriculum -- to 5 to
12-year-olds in a visually inter-
active way. It's a message
Jeanette is passionate about.
The mother of four adult children
was the driving force behind the
establishment of the Southland
Life Education Trust in 1989, of
which she was a trustee for 10
years, and chaired for a while.
''It was a lot of work getting a
mobile classroom up and organ-
ised, but it was something I was
really passionate about,'' she said.
The trust visited nearly every
school in Southland on an annual
rotation before the Heartland
Otago Southland Life Education
Trust, which covers an area from
Mosgiel to Gore and includes the
Lake District and Central Otago,
was established in 2000.
Jeanette, who has been a trustee
for more than 20 years, was
recently presented with a Life
Education Service Award by its
founder, Trevor Grice.
''I was very humbled and it was
totally unexpected. ''I don't do it
for the accolades,'' she said.
The Life Education philosophy is
based on three principles -- that
every child is unique and there
will never be another one the
same, that the human body is
magnificent and that children
should support and respect each
other, because of the delicate and
complex nature of life.
Children as young as 5 learn
about the benefits of exercise and
eating well, while older kids learn
about the effects of drugs,
smoking and alcohol on the
''It takes you on a journey and it
can be very graphic.
''It tells you what will happen if
you put a substance into your
body and what effect it will have
on your system 30 hours later --
the kids' eyes are just popping.''
The Heartland Otago Southland
Trust's mobile classroom visits
schools on an invitation-only
basis and Jeanette strongly
believes it is making a difference
in children's lives.
As a trustee, Jeanette helps
provide support to their local
educator, Pip Tisdall, who works
alone and is based in Lawrence.
''We like to support Pip because
she doesn't have the same peer
support as teachers."
Jeanette visits the mobile class-
room whenever it's in her area
and says she learns ''something
new every time''.
