The trophy is the brainchild of Avril McBeth, a long-standing member of the Hamilton North Group, who wanted to recognise the Group’s 60th Jubilee.
The cup is presented to the school whose students gain the most points as Champions or Reserve Champions. Every child has a chance of winning one of those places, no matter the size of the school they attend.
Champions received 10 points and Reserve Champs five. Gordonton’s winning tally was 50 points.
Eight schools participate in the Hamilton North Group.
“Gordonton School can be proud to have won this cup, as there is very fierce competition out there and a lot of excellent animals from all schools. It is a great and honourable achievement by the children who worked very hard to win those places,” said Gordonton School Ag Club president Sally-Ann Riddell.
“It is a privilege and a pleasure to have this beautiful trophy displayed in our trophy cabinet at our school. It represents the hard work and dedication Gordonton School children put into their Agricultural Day animals.”
The Cup was presented on Friday 23 November at the school assembly. “Well done Gordonton.”
