Gate Sign Competition Winners!

We had over 130 schools send us amazing photos with their new gate signs in place. The creativity that came through was fantastic!

The winning school was Rhode Street School in Hamilton. They built a solar powered robot to hold up their sign by the entrance. The picture shows Amelia and Jarrod who helped make the giant Fonterra Milk for Schools milk pack and straw.

They scaled up an original packets to 1000 larger (great maths) and blew up the image and text by using a grid pattern and then hand-painted it onto the corflute carton they made (great art). The robot is made out of old computers by four students and was painted in Fonterra colours to hold their Fonterra Milk in Schools sign by the caretaker Mr Kerr.

They named him Fonzie because it has the beginning of Fonterra in his name, Fonzie the Milkbot is the latest member of our whanau here at Rhode Street School. Fonzie’s eyes and teeth are LED’s and glow in the dark (solar powered), his heart also glows at night (garden light) and illuminates the Fonterra sign so people can see it all the time.
