This year, World School Milk Day fell during our school holidays, but that didn't stop our amazing schools getting involved.

The Big Slurp took place on Wednesday 23rd September, see below for some great pictures from primary schools around New Zealand. There are plenty more in the gallery too so check them out - see if you can spot your school!

Well done to all the schools who took part, what a fun way to spend a Wednesday.

This year marks the 16th World School Milk Day which falls on the last Wednesday of September annually. It is a celebration of the health benefits of school milk programmes around the world by the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations.

Here in New Zealand, we celebrate by taking The Big Slurp so we can show our Fonterra Farmers how much our primary school kids love their milk.
