“The production was fantastic and had a very clear message that the boys responded to well.The energy shown by your team was also fantastic and the way they interacted with the boys was a real success. The performance is very well structured and keeps the audience on the edge of their seats with the use of music, humour and excellent production of visual aids.”
-Gavin Sweet (Westville Boys’ High School)

At the beginning of the term the entire team piled in our trulife vehicle and headed up the North Coast for a creative time away!
It was such a beneficial time for the team. Colin, our director, inspired us once again with the vision behind TruLife: to Train, Raise and Unleash this generation to live to their full potential!
In order to better achieve our vision we know we need to reach students at an even younger age. So we wasted no time in getting straight to work brain storming, planning and creating our new Grade 6 and Grade 7 productions!
Creating something from scratch is HUGE work! New productions require script writing, choreography, new costumes & filming! Good thing we have an amazing team of extremely creative, high-capacity people to get the job done!
We are already starting to see these productions take some shape and they are looking good!
We are very excited to start performing in primary schools in 2015. We strongly believe our messages for both Grade 6’s and Grade 7’s are pertinent for what they are facing.
Our Grade 6 production deals with peer pressure, identity, self esteem and self worth.
Our Grade 7 production focuses on bullying. We have seen a huge increase in bullying- be that cyber, physical or emotional bullying, and we are passionate about seeing a change in this area.
Thank you again to all of you who continually support us.
