Col­lege on show at Open Day

Great Southern Herald - - News - Michael Traill

Katan­ning board­ers at the WA Col­lege of Agriculture Nar­ro­gin joined in its an­nual open day last Fri­day, cel­e­brat­ing the school’s 112-year his­tory and show­cas­ing what it has to of­fer.

Prin­ci­pal Stephan Watt said the fo­cus of the col­lege was to add value to ev­ery stu­dent.

“The an­nual Open Day is an op­por­tu­nity for cur­rent and prospec­tive par­ents and car­ers to view the col­lege fa­cil­i­ties and learn about how their son or daugh­ter could ben­e­fit,” he said. Past stu­dents from over the years flocked to the cam­pus as well.

For the en­ter­tain­ment, stu­dents com­peted in sheep shear­ing and equine cut­ting, and demon­stra­tions of var­i­ous trades were held in the col­lege’s var­i­ous work­shops.

The school’s fenc­ing team were also pre­sented with the Waratah Shield for win­ning the com­pe­ti­tion at Dow­erin GWN7 Ma­chin­ery Field Days.
