Life Education Trust Mid and South Canterbury Board Members

We are seeking expressions of interest from community minded individuals looking to contribute to a long-standing education-based trust.
As a non-Government funded charitable trust board, we are responsible for ensuring the financial and educational excellence and long-term viability of Life Education Trust Mid and South Canterbury.

We are extremely proud of what a small team of Trustees can accomplish, along with our administrator and two fully qualified teacher-trained Educators. Together we cater for approximately 8000 children per year and take the lessons to over 65 schools around the wider region.

In the previous 24 months we have successfully rebranded the Harold Club to become Friends of Harold (encompassing every type of support we receive), rewrapped the entire mobile classroom, purchased a replacement truck, installed a wheelchair lift (to enable children with disabilities to enter safely) and covered the ever-increasing costs across all functions of the trust. This is achieved by 10 volunteer trustees who represent our region of Glenavy to Rakaia and as far afield as Mt Cook.

Life Education Trust Mid-South Canterbury could not achieve this without the help of our local communities. We are now reaching out to our local areas in the hope of informing interested parties of our need for new trustees to join our board. We are seeking community-minded individuals that are willing to assist us to ensure that Life Education Trust continues in Mid and South Canterbury for another 30+ years.

If any of your members are interested, please contact Amy via and one of our current trustees will be in contact to explain the who, what and when.
