The campus has put the call-out to students new and old to attend the anniversary, which will celebrate Muresk’s deep history as well as it’s current place in regional education.

“It’s been great to get together, a lot of work but it’s paying off,” Muresk90th anniversary convenor Tricia Slee said.

“There hasn’t been a database of previous students in the past, so at the moment we’re tracking everyone down that we can.

“It’s been really interesting to get in contact with people who attended Muresk 40, 50 years ago and to hear their stories.”

Opened in 1926 as a training facility for farm managers –a unique direction at a time when the general trend in Australia was on training agricultural technologists –Muresk has gone through many evolutions since, including the very successful nursing program in the 1980’s.

“Muresk was traditionally known as an agricultural college, but these days it’s much more than that,” Ms Slee said.

“The nursing program has been incredibly important to the region and other isolated areas of the state. The veterinary students have had a lot of success as well.”

The ‘Back to Muresk’ 90th Anniversary event aims to celebrate the combined contributions to agriculturaleducation by Muresk in its many guise.

The celebrations will be family friendly, with activities including Muresk farm andcampus tours, memories shared by former students and staff, demonstrations of new agriculturaltechnologies, family entertainment and displays by current Muresk training providers.

Muresk students past and present are being urged to get on board with the celebrations. Updates will be released closer to the date.
