WSHS successful at shows

STUDENTS at Warwick State High School (WSHS) showed they’re not just a whiz with a scholastic pen but can excel when given a lead in the showing arena.

Last month the school’s cattle, sheep and goat show-team students competed in the Warwick and Toowoomba Royal Show, taking out highly coveted positions on the podium.

(WSHS) Agricultural Department teacher and mentor Amanda Cox was thrilled with her students’ success and personal growth as they embraced the showing challenge.

“Special congratulations to Jacob Stevens, who gained the honorary position of associated judge at the Toowoomba Royal Show in the Angora goat section,” Miss Cox said.

“Also congratulations to Troy Hagenbach and Sally Whitton, who were associated judges for the cattle section at the Warwick Show.”

The highlights were the sashes awarded for Reserve Champion Droughtmasters Female and Reserve Droughtmasters Bull.
