THERE was ‘pandamonium’ at Newburgh Primary School when it was chosen for the launch of new milk cartons by Robert Wiseman Dairies.

The company has joined forces with the Royal Zoological Society Scotland to mark the residence at Edinburgh Zoo of two giant pandas, Tian Tian and Yang Guang.

It has introduced a specially-designed range of fresh milk cartons for schoolchildren with fun panda facts and a link to educational resources based on the Curriculum for Excellence, available through www.wiseman-dairies.co.uk/panda

The cartons will reach around 700,000 youngsters in nursery and primary schools throughout Scotland.

Said Frances Gibb, a class teacher at Newburgh Primary School: “Wiseman’s panda project and educational resources have been a fantastic bonus and are being used from Primary 1 to Primary 7.

“There has been great excitement awaiting the panda cartons and now that they have arrived we are enjoying looking out for all the panda information on them.”
