SECRET Harbour, Bertram and Baldivis primary school students have been indulging their artistic talents by giving a cow a makeover.

Students painted and decorated a life-sized fibre-glass cow as part of Dairy Australia’s national Picasso Cows Makeover program.

They could choose from three themes: Unbeatable Bones, Fuel for Life or From Farm to Plate.

The program aims to help primary school kids learn where food comes from, the health benefits of dairy foods and the importance of the Australian dairy industry.

One school will be named the National Makeover Champion and will win $2500. Second place wins $1000 and third place $500. The three local schools will vie for top spot against 61 schools around the nation.

The beautiful bovines will take pride of place in the school yards for years to come.
