The past few weeks have been busy with the final shows for our scholarship students, The Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria’s Melbourne Show was a mammoth achievement by the cattle scholars, after five long days of grooming, weighing, grooming, feeding, grooming, parading, grooming and more parading, the scholars were exhausted. A fantastic time was had by all and it was an amazing opportunity to be a part of the event. Everyone represented themselves and the College extremely well and I am sure they all learnt a lot!
Alice M, Kiera B, Kate M and Oliver M all won ribbons and I think the whole team should have won as they did very well as well.
Two weeks later they backed up again for a stellar performance at the Sunbury Show and were again extremely successful.
Prizes were taken home for: Champion – Cow, Heifer and Bull; Supreme Champion Cow
Student were also awarded for their handling skills: 1st Place Kiera B; 2nd Place Kate M; 3rd Place Tori H, and the junior judging section was won by Kate M with runner up Oliver M.
In the Sheep section of the Sunbury show the School managed to claim most of the prizes on offer:
7 x 1st Place; 5 x 2nd Place, 3 x 3rd Place, and 4 x 4th Place
Again, I think a great deal has been learnt as well as a fun time by all, Congratulations to all those involved.
