Fonterra awards Ipads to student
Kairi Shelton’s detective work was spot on at this year’s Fieldays where she won two Ipads for her classroom in a competition run by Fonterra.
The company received more than 500 entrants which was open to all children, and the challenge was to answer a series of questions through research at the Fieldays.
Fonterra Shareholders Council chairman Ian Brown and milk in schools advocate Hayden Hilhorst presented the prize to the 7-year old at Tokoroa’s Cargill Open Plan School on June 19.
Brown, who is a South Waikato farmer, was stoked it went to a local school along with Hilhorst who grew up in Putaruru.
The competition aligned with their milk in schools campaign, he said.
‘‘ It’s around what can we do to lift educations for children.’’
As a farmer Brown said he was proud to see the product he works with contribute towards the initiative.
