The final selection to compete at this year’s EKKA for our Cattle Club was made up of six students and seven head of cattle. With record numbers of cattle and students competing this year, it was always going to be difficult, however, our students performed extremely well.

Successes include:

Stuart Woodside- 3rd in the under 13 years beef cattle judging.

Thea Diack- 7th in the under 13 years paraders competition.

Seb Christensen – Made the final of the 14 and 15 years paraders with 160 students in his age group

Rohan Hullock – Made the final in the 16 years + for paraders.

Unfortunately, our cattle didn’t win any ribbons this year in the show ring but as always hung up well as carcasses, with one heifer coming 4th out of 34 with a score of 88 points out of 100. Another steer called The Rock, came 9th out of 55 with a score of 84 points.

Well done to all those students who worked tirelessly and represented the school with pride. Special thank you to Mr Collett, Mrs Goonan and Mrs Gibbons for accompanying the students and for all your efforts.
