Sport Taranaki is a charitable trust, established in 1989, dedicated to the promotion of sport and physical recreation in Taranaki. Sport Taranaki is a community focused organisation whose role is to identify and respond to the sport and recreation needs of people of all ages in the Taranaki region.

Part funded by Sport NZ, Sport Taranaki is one of 17 Regional Sports Trusts located throughout New Zealand. Our staff work in the sport, education and health sectors and work towards the goals of Sport Taranaki. Over the years, Sport Taranaki has evolved with the times and changes within society, resulting in the growth of the number of employees at Sport Taranaki and also the development and building of the Sports House which is located at The Yarrow Stadium.

W.R. Phillips Ltd are proud to announce a new sponsorship with Life Education Trust Taranaki.

Life Education is a non-profit organisation. They teach health to 245,000 primary and intermediate school children each year. Life Education goes into schools by invitation, not by right. They are linked into the school curriculum.
Life Education is a preventative approach. They 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.
Life Education do this by taking children on an adventure in a mobile classroom that is equipped with sight and sound equipment designed to capture children's imaginations. Our educators (registered teachers) take children on this journey, along with Harold the Giraffe, our mascot. These educators are chosen for their x-factor and together with Harold make the journey fun as well as educational.
