Cattle Show Team
Participation in extra-curricular activities is encouraged with the opportunity to join the Mackay Christian College Agricultural Centre of Excellence Cattle Show Team. Membership is open to all Year 10, 11 & 12 students. No prior experience is required as students from all backgrounds can join. The CST trains, prepares and exhibits our own stud cattle and steers as well as cattle from local cattle studs.
The challenging yet rewarding extra-curricular activity provides students with opportunities to participate in ‘Junior Parading’ and ‘Junior Judging’ competitions at the local and regional shows with students regularly winning or placing in all competitions. The CST allows students to learn personal skills such as animal handling, personal grooming, public speaking, time management and the opportunity to participate in overnight camping excursions.
