Our school has re-accrediting with ISA (International School Award) of British Council. Among nine projects, the grade nine students engaged with “Discover the dairy”, a collaborative project done with ‘Vishwa Vidyapeeth, Bangalore’ which was based on milk production all over the world.

Here some feedback of our students,

Tharmitha Anandaratnam - 9 F

I am Miss. Tharmitha Anandaratnam; I would like to share my experience with this project. First, I was not interested but scared about this project because I didn’t know so many things about dairy products and cattle rearing.

But, I searched on the topic of this project; I found I had a good chance to improve my knowledge on this topic. I found facts about organic milk. Organic milk contains same nutrients as conventional milk, including vitamin D, potassium, calcium, etc. Although studies have suggested organic milk has higher levels of antioxidants, vitamins and fatty acids. Before working in this project I didn’t know about organic milk. But when I read articles, I was amazed about this. We made power point presentations and engaged in a skype session too.

Here are some new facts i leant: as of 2015, researchers haven’t reached a consensus on whether organic milk promote health benefits. Next I searched about our country milk factory Victoria. DBV is a purpose build food manufacturing facility in January 2008 0n 8th 250m of land.

The facility occupies 3300m of ware housing, production and corporate offices and has a production capacity around 12000 MTS annum. DBV is conveniently located at the Wyndham industrial estate.

DBV is a manufacturer of dry blended dairy powders for the bakery, confectionery and nutritional industries produced within a strictly sanitized and quality control environment. After reading about Victoria manufacturing Factory I knew dairy production is a major part of our country’s business.

At last I can say it was a good experience for me and our school students to improve their talents and to learn more things around the world on Dairy production. It was a nice experience!

Sadhana Sivayokan - 9F

I am Sadhana and I’d like to share my experience of the project through this media. It had been a bit boring working on this particular topic since it’s not that interesting but once I’ve started searching for information it appeared to be full of facts.

For example when I first searched on the heading cattle rearing, there were so many links and I went through most of them to realize that there are many facts regarding that all over the world .I went through many other websites and found so many details about cattle farming and milk production in Sri Lanka that I haven’t heard from anyone. It was both interesting and surprising to find about what happens in Sri Lanka in a popular industry like dairy.

The other countries like America and Australia they also have different ways of doing dairy industries so, I got to know more about them on the first time. It was so interesting to compare notes with those countries and Sri Lanka. Even though they were different in many ways I still felt good knowing about them.

I did interesting activities and the skype session was the best one. All over I learned about cattle rearing, milk production, dairy products, milk cows and so many stuff regarding the heading all over the world. It was even interesting to read about the factories than others since there were facts regarding how they produce a dairy product. The one I specifically liked was the Dairy Best Victoria factory in Australia which had many web links of its own so that I was able to gain more about them.

While I was searching I even found other connecting facts like the Jallikattu protest and the real reasons and how they effect on dairy industry. It was good to know the truth about all that protest and stuff so that I don’t have to imagine something which is terribly wrong with the subject.

All I can say as a conclusion is that I learned a lot through this topic and it was factual too. Most of all it was a very good experience.

Thank you.
