Frensham walked away with several ribbons after their cattle team competed in the Sydney Royal Easter Show.
Alex Lester from Year 12, Year 11 students Judy Hopkins and Maggie Waldren, and Year 10 student Rosie Laird all agreed despite all the early starts, the experience was worth it.
The all-girls team's were rewarded blue ribbons for Herdman's Best Maintained Team and Heavyweight School Carcase, Bronze for their steer Quincey and rewarded Champion School Carcase.
Year 11 student Judy led steer Quincey and added second in the School Paraders Competition, and fifth in the Heavyweight School Led Steer to the school's list of awards.
"Quincey was bred on our family property," she said.
"I got to work with him at school, and at home.
"I made sure he knew me before he was taken to a school environment."
Agricultural teacher Leonie Mutch said that the show allowed the students to learn a wide variety of skills.
"It's a new experience. They were keen and wanting to learn," she said.
"For the best maintained team, students were judged on how they're presented, and how their stall and steers are presented.
"Members of the public spoke to them, so they got good skills from just being able to talk to people."
The students also groomed and prepared steers for the hook and hoof competitions.
"It took up your own free time, but it became enjoyable, and I bonded with my steer Westley," Alex said.
Alex is also mentioned that the experience will be beneficial to her pursue of veterinary science.
Rosie enjoyed being "part of a big show."
"It was really fun," she said.
"It was the best to see other schools, and see their inner workings."
Maggie agreed that it was great to hang out with friends, and attend local shows in the lead up.
Maggie also added that it was a new experience from her family farm.
Judy said she found it "really encouraging" to see other girls schools at the event.
"It's a privilege to be representing young women in the industry," she said.
Women are becoming a huge part of the industry, and we are just as capable.
"The majority of handlers are girls," Ms Mutch added.
"Maybe that's the direction agriculture is heading in."
