Notre Dame Col­lege and Mooroopna North Pri­mary School were among the schools recog­nised for their par­tic­i­pa­tion in the pro­gram at a pre­sen­ta­tion day held at Shep­par­ton RSL. Achieve­ment:

Cel­e­brated: Stu­dents from 11 north­ern Vic­to­rian schools have been recog­nised for their par­tic­i­pa­tion in Dairy Aus­tralia’s Cows Cre­ate Ca­reers pro­gram.
