Yass High School Year 12 student Sarah Targett received bronze in the 2016 Worldskills National competition in Melbourne, in the Primary Industries Vocational Education Training (VET) against a field of six competitors.
At the pinnacle of her chosen VET course, the result has given her great confidence in her HSC exams. Part of a team of 34 students from NSW High Schools from VET courses as diverse as Hairdressing, Construction and Engineering, Sarah competed in over five skill areas; tractor operation, chemical application, animal handling, conventional and electric fencing, and group participation in assigned tasks.
She received the Yass Veterinary Hospital Achievement Award at the Bookham Agricultural Bureau Dinner and was successful at the Murrumburrah Show in Cattle judging. Her recent success puts her in good stead for her future as an Agriculture teacher, following her HSC and University studies.
