At Fonterra, we think one of the best ways
to look after New Zealand's future is to look
after our kids. That's why together with our
10,500 Fonterra farmers we are doing our
bit to help out kids all around New Zealand
by sharing what we do best. Through the
Fonterra Milk for Schools programme, kids
will have the goodness of milk with calcium
for healthy teeth and bones and protein to
build muscle when their growing bodies
need it the most.
By the end of Term 1 2014, every school in
New Zealand with children in Years 1 -- 6
will have the opportunity to offer free milk
to their kids. The programme is voluntary
so schools and parents can choose whether
their children take part.
This term, the programme is rolling out to
schools in Southland & Otago. Kids in years
1 -- 6 in schools that sign up will be offered
a 180ml pack of Anchor Lite UHT milk every
As part of the programme schools also
receive the following;
1 Free delivery of milk to schools
2 Free fridges to keep the milk cold
3 Recycling kits consisting of bins and bags
4 Collection of used packaging for recycling
Fonterra Milk for Schools is
our commitment to caring for
New Zealand's kids.

Museum wanted at Awarua
By CAROLYN DEVERSON
They want to develop an Awarua
Radio Station museum as a centen-
nial project and they've sought help
from Owaka Museum.
Four members of the Awarua
Communications Museum on the
Bluff-Invercargill Highway visited
the Owaka Museum for help with
their project to create a museum at
the Awarua Radio Station site by
While in Owaka, they met Jack
Knight, who was one of the
people who manned the station
during World War II when it
intercepted Japanese radio traffic.
The station was built in 1913 and
three of the German cottages from
that time are still standing.
In 1972, the present building was
built and when the Awarua Radio
Station finally closed in 1981 the
McKenzie family donated the build-
ing to the museum committee.
The Invercargill City Council now
owns the land but the museum still
owns the building.
The Awarua museum will tell the
story of telecommunications in New
Zealand and how they have changed
over the century, and will display
artefacts and show films about that.
