02 Jun 2015


Celebrate Tocal College’s 50th Anniversary at ‘Back to Tocal’ on 25–26 July.

Tocal College has been the centre of agricultural education for over five decades and this year marks the 50th Anniversary since the college welcomed its first 15 students in March 1965. Since then, hundreds of students have graduated from the College, going on to a variety of careers all over Australia.

The College will be celebrating its half-century with several events throughout the year, spearheaded by Back to Tocal, a weekend-long celebration on the 25–26 July.

Animal Health Australia (AHA) would like to congratulate Tocal College on delivering 50 years of leading agricultural and conservation land management education.

AHA has a longstanding relationship with Tocal College, with the two organisations partnering to facilitate and deliver a range of emergency animal disease (EAD) training and biosecurity programs under the Australian Qualifications Training Framework.

The partnership between AHA and Tocal spans more than 10 years, and is the longest continuous relationship the College has had with any other organisation.

“In an ever-changing agricultural landscape, Tocal College is proud to have such a continuous, stable and focussed relationship as we do with AHA,” Tocal College’s Manager Education Delivery, Darren Bayley, said.

“We look forward to continuing this relationship well into the future.”

All former students, college staff and the community is invited to come Back to Tocal, with the event offer the unique chance to reconnect with old friends and revisit the campus and farms.

Activities during the event include guided walking and coach tours running all weekend, as well as live music and a bonfire on Saturday night.
