LIPA Primary School students learn about health benefits of dairy products from local company

Merseyside’s Mortons Dairies recently visited LIPA Primary School in Liverpool as part of their new initiative to educate local children about dairy products.

The family-run dairy taught pupils about milk, the cows it comes from and its health benefits. They also shared samples of dairy products with the children. 

Mortons Dairies has been delivering milk and groceries to neighbourhoods in Liverpool and the surrounding areas since the 1920s.

LIPA Primary is a free school opened by The Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts in partnership with Edge Hill University. Their focus on creative and performing arts aims to enrich the early development of language, reading, writing and mathematics skills.

Greg Parker, Head Teacher at LIPA Primary School, said: “We aim to immerse children in enjoyable learning experiences, so we were thrilled when the milkmen from Mortons Diaries offered to visit with their milk float. The children were excited to find out more about where their milk comes from and loved being able to see the traditional float.”
