Primary school students have until Friday to enter a milk
competition launched on World School Milk Day.
The essay competition targeting Class 1 to Class 4 primary
school students is inviting students to submit essays entitled
My Parents Should Ensure I Drink Milk Each Day
Because. One child from each age group islandwide will get
the chance to win an electronic tablet when the winners are
announced on October 28.
Activity booklets with entry details for the essay writing
competition were distributed on World School Milk Day
to schools islandwide and teachers are being encouraged to use
this opportunity to promote good writing skills and information
gathering among children.
Commercial manager of Beverages Caribbean Limited (BCL),
Henry Yearwood, who is attached to Barbados Dairy Industries
Limited (BDIL), better known as Pine Hill Dairy, presented the
activity booklets and addressed students and teachers at the
Grantley Prescod Primary School. The Pine Hill Dairy adopted
the Grantley Prescod Primary School several years ago.
“We at Barbados Dairy Industries Ltd support our nation’s
greatest potential, through encouraging good health and
promoting the development of intelligence and creativity,”
“The BDIL takes its responsibility as the island’s
provider of milk as more than business,” added
Yearwood. “BDIL understands the social role to
the community and embraces this through various
initiatives targeted at ensuring the most important
segments of our market understand how important
milk is to their well-being.”
The Ministry of Education has endorsed
the BDIL initiative.
