My name is Luke Finlay and I am the teacher from Gunnedah South Public School that had all of the primary school kids that were showing Spry's sheep last year. I recently received an email from Kate Spry regarding student days out at Amarula. I have recently obtained a permanent position in another school, meaning that I have left Gunnedah South School. With me leaving the school has decided that it is not going to continue with sheep showing, as I was the driving force behind the project in the first place. I apologise that I have not contacted the Dorper Society earlier, as you all offered to support us if we were to continue this year with our sheep. I can say with all honesty that the one down side to leaving Gunnedah South was that I could not continue with sheep showing through the Dorper Society. Everybody in the society made myself, the students and parents of our small showing team totally supported and welcome. Having a background in showing cattle, it is plain to see that many other breed societies around the country could benefit greatly from adopting the same attitude as the welcoming members of your group. It will be one of my lasting memories as a teacher, watching the kids run around in their little red shirts, helping out exhibitors at the Dubbo showgrounds. Thank you once again Sharon and I wish yourself and the society all the best.
