Fonterra Milk For Schools Launch

SMC worked in conjunction with Fonterra to plan a the ‘Milk For Schools” Launch. Hosted at a local primary school, the theme was country comes to the city. Hay bales, farm animals, balloons, milk tanker and tractors will provide the back drop for the fun day.

The pupils played games with hero’s such as Richie McCaw. The formal part of the day included a stage with the back drop of a Fonterra Milk tanker for offical speeches and media interview. The day was reported live on TV1 and TV3 news.
