    Printed: 'February, 1983. / Dear Customer, / Welcome to our first release of animal posters for 1983 - we've / selected a 'Cassowary' and the ever-popular 'Sulphur Crested Cockatoo', / and hope your students will again find them stimulating and / interesting. / To assist your students in their school program, why not use these / posters as a starting point for a class-room project e.g. What / is their habitat in Australia? What do they eat? How heavy are they? / Have they any special "skills"? - these are just a few "starters" / which I'm sure you could extend into a worthwhile student activity. / For any outstanding results, perhaps your local paper or school / magazine may consider the material newsworthy enough for publication. / We'd certainly be pleased to receive copies of any results which do / get published, or your comments on this program, so that we can better / evaluate how useful these posters are to your pupuls. / [signature] / N.S. Hesketh / Manager / Photo Information Services / Marketing Communications. / NSH: jp / PS: The Kodak range of overhead projectors and materials is currently / offered to schools at a special saving until March 31, 1983. / You can read more about this in our enclosed leaflet. / [return address to Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd in Coburg]'
