Harold - GiraffeRay White Te Awamutu is supporting their local community by going into their thrid year of sponsoring the Life Education Trust. Ray White is branded on the side of their mobile classroom. Life Education is a non-profit organisation. We teach health to 225,000 primary and intermediate school children each year. We go into schools by invitation, not by right. We are linked into the school curriculum.

“Life Education is a preventative approach. We teach children about the wonder of life, themselves, and other people, with the aim of showing them how to reach their full potential. Life Education does not necessarily work on changing children’s behaviour, it works on changing desires. Rather than frightening children with various forms of scare tactics, the Life Education philosophy focuses on creating a sensitivity to values which lead to an understanding and appreciation of human life. This enables the child to make decisions about any negative influences that might impede the development of their fullest potential.”

Gregg Tickelpenny, Te Awamutu business owner, commented “We decided to become a major sponsor of Life Education Trust as having young families ourselves we found we had an affiliation to the cause. When my children came home from  school saying they all knew “Harold” and how cool he was I thought this is worth investigating further. We had a site visit and were introduced to the specialist teacher and Harold  in his mobile classroom. This confirmed to us the positive message they were trying to get across and what a great cause it was in developing the future generation.”
