Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

MT MOL­LOY State School re­cently wel­comed a herd of 75 model cows to their school as part of The Great Wall of Dairy Pro­gram.

Stu­dents will soon be learn­ing the his­tory of the dairy in­dus­try in the lo­cal area through re­search and in­ter­views with lo­cal res­i­dents.

They will also learn about the im­por­tance of hav­ing a healthy, bal­anced diet and will have the op­por­tu­nity to cook with a va­ri­ety of dairy prod­ucts as part of the schools Stephanie Alexan­der - Kitchen Gar­den Pro­gram where the stu­dents par­tic­i­pate in weekly cook­ing classes.

Year 7 stu­dent Jye Schreiber said the pro­gram is a lot of fun.

‘‘ Dairy is im­por­tant in ev­ery­day life be­cause it con­tains cal­cium and helps your bones to grow,’’ he said.

The herd of cows will be painted and dec­o­rated in their art classes, how­ever the stu­dents see fit.

The cows will be herded off and dis­played at the pre­sen­ta­tion event in Au­gust.
