Life Education Trust NZ Receives Support From Propharma

Every Life Education Trust mobile classroom in New Zealand is set to benefit from an $8,000 donation towards programme resource material and teaching resources from ProPharma New Zealand.

Each year, over 220,000 primary school children visit one of 36 Life Education mobile classroom's across the country to learn about the importance of making positive and healthy choices in life, from the food they eat, to the importance of respecting and caring for others.

David Lewis, General Manager of ProPharma, New Zealand's largest and only national pharmaceutical wholesaler, says the positive health-based messages delivered by Life Education educators fit well with the company and its pharmacy customers.

"One of ProPharma's key values is a 'Can Do, Will Do' attitude which mirrors the Life Education Trust's message that each child is special and unique. We are delighted to have the opportunity to endorse and support the Life Education Trust NZ's mobile classrooms," says Mr Lewis.

Life Education's Chief Executive, Peter Cox, says ProPharma's donation demonstrates their willingness to contribute to the community.

"Life Education cannot currently meet the demand for its services with large waiting lists every year. In 2004 we were invited to visit 1,328 primary and intermediate schools and are on track to achieve similar numbers this year. The actions of ProPharma and its customers will not go unnoticed and every Life Education Trust in New Zealand will welcome and appreciate their generosity," says Mr Cox.

Through the continued support of Life Education Trust NZ's sponsors such as Westpac and Just Juice, new mobile classrooms will begin operating in Marlborough, the West Coast, Christchurch and Auckland in 2006.

"Schools value our positive health based programmes because they are all linked to the current Health and Physical Education Curriculums. Children readily recognise and relate to Harold, the Life Education mascot, who reinforces all the programme messages and is now a national icon," he added.
