The Heartland Otago Southland Trust consists of six volunteer Trustees, our Educators Pip and Roshell, and Office Administrator, Dana.

Our volunteer trustees work hard to ensure the smooth operating of our trust -  each regional trust is responsible for running the total Life Education operation in their region, including employing staff, purchasing of/maintenance of educational resources and associated technology, as well as supplying and maintaining the mobile classroom, tractor unit (truck), and the Educator’s vehicle.  

Our Trustees are from throughout the region, and are very committed to looking after Harold, Pip and the mobile classroom, so that they can bring the important Life Education messages to all of our schools.
