College wins grand champion purebred steer award
Brisbane Water Secondary College took home this year's grand champion purebred steer award for Sheraton Skippy, a 632 kilo black limousin, at the Sydney Royal Easter Show Purebred Steer Competition.
The college's cattle exhibit was paraded by Year 10 student Kynesha Stapleton in a competition which saw over 60 school and commercial competitors.
Sheraton Skippy was entered into the show in a partnership with Brisbane Water Secondary College and Mr Ben Toll of Sheraton Limousins, Dubbo, who bred the winning steer.
Mr Toll has been a supporter of the college's cattle program, seeing first-hand the benefits of introducing young people to the cattle industry along with the personal and professional opportunities it presents.
He was thrilled to be a part of the success of the college this year and is already looking forward to partnering with the college in the 2018 Sydney Royal Easter Show.
Many past and present students of the college have benefited in their personal development as well as their career pathways from their ongoing relationship with Mr Toll and other industry professionals like him.
It is the 23rd consecutive year that students from Brisbane Water Secondary College have competed at the Easter Shows Cattle Show through a program designed to provide students with opportunities to develop new skills through community engagement activities.
