For the past three weeks, Chevalier College has hosted two extremely adorable guests.
Two calves had made their home at the school as part of the Cows Create Careers program.
This is the second year Chevalier has taken part in the program that aims to give students an insight into career pathways in the dairy industry.
Students explore careers other than that of a dairy farmer- jobs such as banking and vets as well as those jobs on the farm such as truck drivers and milkers.
Year 10 student Darcy Howard, who has two calves at home, said for many students who did not live on a rural property it could be a real eye opener.
“They don’t realise the amount of work that goes into handling animals and looking after them,” he said.
Luke Micallef from Vella Stock Feeds also came to speak to the Year 10 agricultural students as an industry advocate about his career.
This year’s calves were donated by Greg Schofield.
Students feed and check the calves twice a day and record their findings and progress.
As part of the program, the school is also provided with a dairy industry curriculum.
Chevalier is one of 20 schools in the South Coast region taking part in the program during Term 3.
A presentation finale will be held on October 18 in Wollongong.
