• Twilight Paraders 2014

    27 April, 2014

    The 2014 Twilight Cattle Parade was a sea of “Kids, Colour and Cows” on Tuesday night, 1st April, at the All Saints’ College school farm.

    With over 250 people in attendance and over 80 registered paraders, the night represented a fun-filled conclusion to the term-long cattle breaking programme at the school. With participation from both the Junior School and Senior School, it was truly a whole school function.

    The night included six events involving leading cattle into the show ring as well as a fancy dress parade. Many students from the school have been working on their cattle since the start of term and will no doubt be sad to see them leave our grounds for greener pastures.

    A big congratulation goes out the Year 11 Agriculture class who planned and executed the night with professional precision. There were also a host of volunteers who helped judge, cook and help students prepare the cows. A special thanks to Father Paul Woodhart and Mrs Margaret Gaal, old friends of the school farm, who assisted with judging the event. Prizes were made available by a host of generous folks from around town including Town and Country Rural Supplies, Perthville Rural Supples, Landmark Bathurst, Fish and Sons Rural Supplies and Saddle World Bathurst. Mr Gary Hamer and his family have also been generous in facilitating the supply of hay through the past two months. We thank you all very much for your support.

    Sights are now set on participating in the Bathurst Show in the first weekend of May. About 30 Senior School students will prepare and display a swag of steers, heifers and cows in the local event. Some students will also be performing official stewarding duties following their successful participating in the local stewarding training programme. The preparation of these animals and paraders has been going on since the start of the term and will continue through the holidays. It is a big commitment, but there is plenty to learn and gain through being involved. Anyone interested in being a part of the team or participating in the future is encouraged to contact the school Agriculture Department through Reception.
