River Valley Primary School in Burekup is taking the time this term to educate their students about food sustainability and where what we eat comes from.
The colourful cow statues were decorated as part of the Picasso Cows program in one of three dairy related themes – unbeatable bones, fuel for life or from farm to plate.
The program aims to teach primary school kids about where their 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 in September and will receive a $2,500 prize.
Senior teacher Kylie Ryan said the program was about teaching students to consider better food choices and fresh produce.
“I think this is important, some of the students didn’t know what a wind farm is or where meat comes from,” Ms Ryan said.
“Considering we live surrounded by the dairy industry it’s important and some people take the food cycle for granted.”
