 GUYRA local and Farrer Memorial Agricultural School student Jack McKemey bagged a silver medal at the WorldSkills Australia 2018 National Championships in Sydney this week.

Australia’s largest skills competition was hosted at the International Convention Centre over the last three days and Jack scored his silver as a Vocational Education and Training student of agriculture.

Member for Northern Tablelands and Minister responsible for TAFE Adam Marshall congratulated the committed Year 12 student for the terrific result against some serious competition.

The Northern Tablelands Electorate was well represented with two medalists making their mark – Jack with a silver medal in agriculture and gold medalist Courtney Baldwin in hairdressing.

“I am immensely proud to see two local students on the podium at the end of competition and I join their family and friends in extending my congratulations,” Mr Marshall said.

“Jack hails from Guyra and represents Farrer Memorial Agricultural School – my old Alma Mater – so I am doubly impressed.

“Winning these awards demonstrate what is on offer for students if they choose a VET based education.

“Congratulations to Jack and I look forward to seeing even more students from our region recognised for their achievements in the future.”
