Picture: Caitlin Jarvis.Yolla District HighSchool pupils were put through their paces with their sheep handling skills at the Burnie Show on Friday.

The school has a strong agricultural education focus and has its own Hampshire Down sheep stud where the students learn to handle the animals.

Emma Jones, 9, said she had been handling the animals for about a year and a half.

At the Burnie Show she received a second-place ribbon.

“It’s really fun,” she said.

James Barker, 10, said he had only been handling sheep for about six months but he really enjoyed that it was something different than being in the classroom.

“I have only just started, I sort of fell into it because they were short at the Deloraine Show so I said I’d help out,” he said.

“But I really enjoyed it so I kept doing it.”

James received a third place ribbon in the ewe and ram paired section where she showed the ewe and her partner ram.

Yolla District HighSchool owns the Yolandra Hampshire Down stud.

The pupils have been working with the animals every day for the past week to prepare them and the sheep for the show but prior to that worked with their animals once a week.

Yolla District HighSchool brought three woolly ewes, two woolly rams, three shorn rams and eight ewes with lambs.
