August 2021 Isabelle Armstrong, Year 7 student, came third in the Handlers Competition at the online QPL Rural Youth Expo this August. After the disappointment of the initial cancellation of this event students were offered the opportunity to participate in an online competition. The event is aimed at school students interested in sheep management and the online Handlers Competition allowed students to showcase their skills in leading sheep, explain the breeding lines and how the stock have been cared for. Isabelle can be found down at the sheep yards each lunchtime caring for the ewes. She is passionate about working with sheep and is a keen member of the College Sheep Team. The QPL Rural Youth Expo is in it's second year and the College is keen participate in the 2022 competition expanding its experience in sheep rearing and showing.
