Green Island School pupils were treated to a surprise breakfast with the Highlanders last week.

To celebrate Harraway & Sons Ltd’s new partnership with the rugby team, players visited Green Island School last week to serve pupils some breakfast.

"All children should start each day with a nutritious breakfast," Harraways chief executive officer Henry Hawkins said.

"Having the Highlanders as role models to encourage this behaviour is the icing on the cake for Harraways."

Pupils were given tickets to the next home game.

Harraways has been based in Otago since 1867 and the original Green Island mill site, which took Harraways’ name, is still its head office.
