Will is the king of Aus­tralian rodeo

Mansfield Courier - - Trades& Services Directory -

MANS­FIELD’S most fa­mous cow­boy, Will Pur­cell, took time out last week to visit his roots when he called in at the Mer­ri­jig Pri­mary School.

Hot on the heels from his win not just at the Wodonga Rodeo but also at the Aus­tralian Na­tional Ti­tles, Will spoke to the stu­dents about what it takes to fol­low your dreams.

Speak­ing about de­ter­mi­na­tion, hard work and a re­fusal to give up, Will was an in­spir­ing guest for stu­dents – and caps off a stel­lar cou­ple of weeks for Mer­ri­jig stu­dents, who were also treated to a visit from Par­a­lympian Carol Cook, who sent the kids home ready to con­quer any ob­sta­cle in pur­suit of their dreams.

ON TOP OF THE WORLD: Will Pur­cell has reached the pin­na­cle of bull rid­ing in Aus­tralia, tak­ing out the APRA 2019 Aus­tralian Na­tional Ti­tle.

IN­SPIR­ING LO­CAL KIDS: It wasn’t so long ago that Will Pur­cell was just an­other rodeo mad kid from Mer­ri­jig – to­day, he is the best in Aus­tralia. Last week, he took time out of his busy sched­ule to chat to stu­dents at the Mer­ri­jig Pri­mary School.
