Not for ourselves alone


Roy Alexander Scholarship

The Roy Alexander Scholarship is used in two ways:

  • A former Mount Barker High School student is selected to attend an all-expenses-paid three-week hands-on training course in stockmanship of sheep and cattle and general farming skills in Hay, New South Wales, through a program called Hay Inc.  The student is selected from the Year 12 cohort and attends the course the following year.
  • The Roy Alexander Scholarship funds the showing of Merino sheep at the annual Royal Adelaide Show. Year 9 students have the opportunity to learn about merino sheep, including their history, animal husbandry and leading of the sheep using a halter and lead. Each year the sheep are kindly donated by Judy and Keith Paech of Lucernbrae Callington.
