Local students from four City of Wanneroo primary schools have shown off their artistic flair recently at the Picasso Cows award presentation ceremony held at Wanneroo Golf Club.

Students from St Anthony’s School, Koondoola Primary School, Tapping Primary School and Mindarie Primary School were in attendance at the event.

Mayor Tracey Roberts said the City of Wanneroo was thrilled with the outcome of the program.

“This has been a great chance for students to express themselves creatively while also learning about an important Australian industry,” she said.

“Our education team saw this as an excellent learning opportunity and worked collaboratively with Dairy Australia to involve our local schools in this statewide competition.

“We are delighted that four of the ten participating schools were from our City and that Mindarie Primary School took out the top prize!

“Wanneroo has a long dairy industry history and it is great to see our local students learning more about the industry.”

The Picasso Cows program, run by Dairy Australia and facilitated within the City of Wanneroo by the education team, is a free curriculum with participating schools sent a blank life-size cow to design and paint in a dairy related theme while learning where food comes from and the importance of dairy in health and industry.

The St Anthony’s Primary School cow is currently on display outside in the Great Court at Wanneroo Museum.
