MIDVALE Primary School students completed a colourful cow and also helped judge the Picasso Cows in Wanneroo.

More than 80 primary schools took part in the program across Australia.

Midvale Primary was proud to be part of the event, which teaches students about the health benefits of dairy foods and the importance of the Australian dairy industry, as well as the challenges faced by farmers.

The students had to paint a life-sized fibreglass cow according to one of three themes, documenting their learning along the way.

The Picasso Cow program has been developed in accordance with the Australian Curriculum and is supported by the teachers with an online teaching resources program.

Students follow a 12-week platform to transform their plain cow into a ‘bright canvas’. The dairy-related work of art also helps in learning about the economic benefits of the dairy industry.

Dairy Australia’s initiative places the spotlight on the industry, celebrating Australia’s dairy farmers, the foods they produce and contribution to the Australian economy.
