Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Helping Others -

The North School staff, stu­dents and an­i­mals re­turned to school on Mon­day, tired but happy are hav­ing a good week­end at the Kent County Show.

Mem­bers of the school’s Young Farm­ers Club won 71 rosettes and came sec­ond place over­all out of 18 clubs.

The team won 14 first place prizes and six tro­phies.

Emma Blunt, sec­re­tary to the head teacher, said: “Rosettes are only awarded for five places and most of the classes had over 15 an­i­mals, some of the lamb classes had over 40, so to come out with any rosette was a big achieve­ment.

“The whole team worked re­ally hard and were so happy with the re­sults.

“As al­ways we are im­mensely proud of our stu­dents.”
