Three Year 10 students from St Augustine's College have earned the top prize for the Senior Division of the Cows Create Careers program securing $3000 for the College. It comes after Ruby Malerba, Sharni Abbate and Shanikka Pena entered the first stage of the competition which involved the construction of a model dairy farm which explored various career pathways within the industry. The students, who refer to themselves as the, 'Baby Cheeses' won the regional competition out-shining the other 20 entrants which afforded them the opportunity to enter the National Competition. That National Competition required a 60-second video entry highlighting the student's learning and need for the prize money.  Of the 44 schools eligible to enter the National Competition, it was St Augustine's entry that was the head of the herd.
Agriculture teacher, Mrs Stephanie Challis, commended the achievement of the three senior students and added that, 'it says a lot about the awesome culture of our school when students can ask staff something as ridiculous as being face painted as cows, and they don't hesitate for a moment to support our students with their endeavours.' 
Perhaps the spilled reconstituted calf-milk powder in Mrs Anderson's Careers Office (some carpet squares had to be removed) earlier in the term, was in fact, a good omen!
