The Scots All Saints College Cattle Team is offered as a co-curricular activity for students from the end of Year 7. Students are involved in the ‘breaking-in’ and preparation of both school stud cattle, school-bred steers and donated steers for regional competitions.
Students work together to manage and train the cattle and, along the way build leadership skills mentoring junior students. Our Mentor program helps new students learn the skills associated with working and showing cattle at an elite level. The success of this program has resulted in the awarding of both Grand Champion, along with Most Successful Exhibitor, at the Sydney Royal Easter Show for the past several years.
Royal Bathurst Show 2019
Young Rural Achievers 2020
Prior to the cancellations of all shows our Cattle Team members participated in the 2020 Young Rural Achievers Competition, linked to Bathurst Royal Show. The students are required to submit a letter, resume and are involved in a panel interview about Agricultural issues and the role they play in our rural community.
Many students enter this competition and our students have achieved amazing results against other schools in the Central West.
Congratulations to all students for the wonderful job they did in all areas of this competition. I would like to thank all students and in particular our older students who provided beautiful support and leadership to our younger and first time students during this process.
