The Colleges Agricultural Awareness and Prospective Student Open Day for 2021 was a resounding success with our students leading the day, with over five hundred visitors in attendance, guests were able to glimpse aspects of Agricultural Enterprises on offer and student life on the 3500-hectare farm.
Paddock to Plate was highlighted with students actively involved in the processes of producing familiar food products that are consumed on site at the College residential facility, and bbq some of the College meat for guests to sample.
The College Trade Training Centre never fails to impress – with its modern, engineering and automotive equipment, the centre caters for students from Years 10 to 12 giving them access to vocational training leading into apprenticeships.
“As part of our comprehensive education and training opportunities, we provide students with the opportunity to study the Certificate II and III in Agriculture, Certificate II in Automotive Vocational Preparation and Certificate II Engineering Pathways. Students also have access to the Trade Training Centre facilities on a daily basis,” said Principal Phil Epps.
“With modern training facilities, additional arable leased land, the introduction of Certificate II in Horse Care, modern residential space and the opportunity for students to study Certificate III, the WA College of Agriculture – Morawa is perfectly poised to take a leading role in training the farmers and industry leaders of the future.”
