STU­DENTS TAKE ON HOOF AND HOOK COM­PE­TI­TION

South Burnett Times - - SOUTH BURNETT SCHOOL NEWS -

SEVEN mem­bers of our show team, plus seven an­i­mals, as well as Mr Amery, Miss Ross and Miss Hay­ward, went along to the Hoof and Hook com­pe­ti­tion in Nanango re­cently.

There were many en­trants in the ju­nior han­dler events. Lach­lan Does­sel made it through his heat and even­tu­ally placed sixth over­all in his age group.

Ai­den Dotta placed fourth in his in­ter­me­di­ate age group.

The ex­pe­ri­enced group was very hotly con­tested and highly com­pet­i­tive.

Brian Smith, El­leana Caswell and Stephanie Flint all com­peted in the Year 9 and 10 age group. Stephanie made it into the fi­nal and even­tu­ally won this age group.

Thurs­day started with the novice han­dler com­pe­ti­tion and Chloe Scan­lan and Alana Does­sel both com­pet­ing in the Year 7 and 8 age group.

Chloe made it into the fi­nal and even­tu­ally won her class.

All our stu­dents com­peted in the ju­nior judg­ing com­pe­ti­tion, with Brian Smith tak­ing home a rib­bon for sec­ond place in the Year 9 and 10 ex­pe­ri­enced cat­e­gory.

We were also very pleased to be placed sixth in the team herds­man awards, not bad con­sid­er­ing we were one of the small­est teams.

Stephanie was also one of four stu­dents se­lected out of 250 for an in­di­vid­ual herds­man prize.

Lach­lan Does­sel also re­ceived the en­cour­age­ment award for all of the Year 9 stu­dents.

This was a fan­tas­tic event and the fi­nal show event for the school year.

It was great to see the stu­dents hav­ing fun and en­joy­ing the com­pe­ti­tion.

They rep­re­sented the school and their fam­i­lies well.

Tex­tiles

LAST term, stu­dents in the tex­tiles elec­tive ex­per­i­mented with var­i­ous tech­niques in­clud­ing felt­ing.

Wet felt­ing in­volved vig­or­ous phys­i­cal han­dling of the yarn.

Nee­dle felt­ing al­lowed the ad­di­tion of finer de­tails.

The fin­ished prod­ucts showed tremen­dous artis­tic flair.

This term the stu­dents have been learn­ing about che­nilling and their works in progress are ex­hibit­ing great cre­ativ­ity.
