FRENSHAM students have taken home a win at this year's Sydney Royal Easter Show with Black Simmental steer Quincy.

The Illabo-bred steer scored 91.5 points to take out Champion School Purebred Carcase and placed fifth in the live judging section, making the school, students and Wormbete Simmentals stud proud.

The stud's Nicole Hopkins said her daughter Judy, who is in Year 11, paraded the steer on behalf of Frensham, and was thrilled with the result from only her second year at the Sydney show.

"Judy also finished second in the school paraders class with the same steer, so she was very excited," she said.

Mrs Hopkins said the success was more about recognising the students' hard work rather than the ribbon.

"But overall it's just a great result and great to see the kids build their skills and confidence, and enjoy what they do," she said.

"The win is just a bonus."

The win was not Quincy's first success either, having had wins at numerous shows including Nowra, Goulburn and Moss Vale.
