Kids work with cattle

THE 2009 Ekka has provided a wonderful opportunity for West Moreton Anglican College agricultural students to showcase some of the cattle that they have cared for and raised at the school by entering them in a number of competitions.

The WMAC Cattle Show Team is an amazing experience that the College offers to students from Years 7-12.

It teaches the students patience, confidence, commitment to the task and consistency as well as teaching them to be respected in the agricultural world which will stand them in good stead for future employment in the industry.

Mr Darren Elliott, Agricultural Science teacher and Mr Jason Beattie, WMAC Farm Manager, took 14 students to the Royal Brisbane Exhibition last week with their cattle.

Principal of WMAC, Mr Ross Switzer, visited the WMAC team at the Ekka and said, “The students and staff are to be congratulated.
