Opening Life Education up to Every Child

Ensuring every child can gain access into Life Education Trust Counties Manukau’s five mobile classrooms is a top priority.

Donations are invited from local businesses and individuals to help purchase a wheelchair hoist to allow ALL students to participate in the unique educational experience offered by Life Education.

To help raise the $18,000 needed to buy the hoist, visit Life Education Trust Counties Manukau Givealittle Page

Life Education provides health education to primary and intermediate students in state of the art mobile digital classrooms. The immersive experience sees specialist educators teach students how to make healthy choices throughout their lives.

Lincoln from the Trust shares “We offer a unique life-changing health education to students from Mt Roskill to Tūākau to Orere. We want every student to be able to participate.

Last year more than 30,000 students visited our classrooms, however our existing ramps aren’t designed for heavier modern wheelchairs. This means we either teach outside of our state of the art learning environments or some students with disabilities miss out.

With over 130 schools inviting us to share our preventative health message programme across Counties Manukau every year, it is vital that the service we provide leaves no child out and this fits in with Life Education’s vision of enabling children to reach their full potential.”

Lincoln adds “Life Education’s three principles include that everyone is unique and special and we educate students that there is a need to make everyone feel comfortable with their identity and this includes supporting and respecting each other.”

The hoist is exclusively made by The Braun Corporation Mobility Products will be easy to assemble and moved between sites and with the aim of also share it amongst other Life Education Trusts in Auckland if needed.
