Tocal College celebrates golden anniversary

From the Maitland Mercury report:
The life and times of Tocal College will come into focus next year as part of the establishment’s 50th anniversary.
From its opening in March 1965 – with 15 male students – the college has grown to become one of Australia’s largest and most diverse agricultural colleges.
“The college was established by the Presbyterian Church as the CB Alexander Presbyterian Agricultural College,” ­principal Cameron Archer said.
“Its operation was transferred to the NSW Department of Agriculture in 1970 and it continues to be operated by the NSW government through the Department of Primary Industries.”
