Will is the king of Australian rodeo
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.
