Students ‘cut-out’ of school for right reasons

CAMPDRAFTING: The Warwick Gold Cup might have come and gone but the campdrafting spirit remains at Scots PGC College.

This weekend, students from the college will compete at the High School Campdraft at Pittsworth.

Equestrian co-ordinator Grace Buchholz is confident the eight students are well prepared.

“We hope most of the kids will be able to walk away with a bit of success. All of our kids have two horses in the competition, which will give them a little bit of an advantage,” Buchholz said.

“We’re hoping that the kids will all do well, but it’ll really depend on what beast they get in the yard, and luck really.”

It’s not the first year the school will compete at the competition, which has 434 first-run competitors from 25 schools throughout Queensland and NSW.

“Hopefully we can get some more competitors in our own team. This is a really good opportunity to showcase their talents and represent the school,” Buchholz said.

“Our main goal is to continue building campdrafting in the Scots community and eventually get our own draft running at the school – it’s also a bit of bragging rights.”
