Burnie High School students are finalists in the MaxCare Cows Create Careers competition


The Cows Create Careers program involved all grade 8, 9 and 10 agriculture students raising calves and then creating advertisements for MaxCare to sell their milk.

Burnie High School teacher Steph Prendergast said Dairy Australia told her two advertising posters had made it to the national final.

“You have to do research into calf raising from a scientific purpose. You have to make a short film.. or posters and we seemed to hit the jackpot with our posters, they had to be eye catching and humorous,” Ms Prendergast said.

“It was just a really beautiful effort for all the students involved, it is nice to see them having fun while they learn.”

She said the students were proud, extremely happy and stoked to make it to the final.

The program is designed to promote careers in the dairy industry and Ms Prendergast said the program had opened student’s eyes to the industry.
