Grand opening for cattle area
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.
