School Milk Week

October 11-15

Milk is one of the most nutritionally complete foods available, but many schools and parents are not taking advantage of the school milk scheme which provides up to 250ml of EU-subsidised milk daily for primary pupils aged 5-11 for as little as 14p per day. In an attempt to wean young couch potatoes off junk food and fizzy drinks and show schools how easy the scheme is to administer, The Dairy Industry Association Ltd and the Milk Development Council are offering free milk for a day to a selection of nominated schools.

Walk for Wildlife 2004

October 10 and other autumn dates

Tigers are under serious threat due to activities such as logging, illegal hunting for body parts used in traditional Chinese medicines, illegal wildlife trade and human encroachment into their habitat. The WWF charity is encouraging schoolchildren to join thousands of walkers in raising funds to protect the declining population of tigers around the world. More than 100 walks have been organised across the UK, including four "mega walks" at Marwell Zoological Park, Whipsnade Wild Animal Park, Cotswold Wildlife Park and Chester Zoo. Individuals and schools raising funds between pound;100 and pound;700 will be entered into draws to win Canon prizes, including a printer, scanner and digital cameras.
