Grand open­ing for cat­tle area

Southern Riverina news - - News -

FIN­LEY High will launch its new cat­tle prepa­ra­tion area, which has now been com­pleted, next term.

Agri­cul­ture teacher Michael O’Leary said the ‘‘magnificent fa­cil­i­ties’’ have been de­vel­oped over the last few years through the as­sis­tance of lo­cal com­mu­nity groups.

‘‘The de­vel­op­ment was given an in­cred­i­ble boost through the sup­port of Fin­ley Apex,’’ Mr O’Leary said.

‘‘They pro­vided a cover for the prepa­ra­tion area com­plete with a wa­ter tank, pump, plumb­ing, power, and light­ing.’’

The fa­cil­i­ties will be of­fi­cially opened from 10am on Wed­nes­day Au­gust 3, when stu­dents will be­gin work­ing in the yards with the large group of an­i­mals in prepa­ra­tion for the Royal Mel­bourne Show.

Mr O’Leary said an of­fi­cial open­ing would be held the same day, from 1pm, which will in­clude lunch for a gold coin do­na­tion.

To at­tend, RSVP to the High School for cater­ing pur­poses.
