Tocal College will celebrate its annual Foundation Day on Friday 1 November, 2019.

The CB Alexander Presbyterian Agricultural College, Tocal was opened by the Hon. Sir Robert Menzies on 6 November, 1965. Since then the opening day of the College has been commemorated by way of Foundation Day.

The day provides an opportunity to commemorate the establishment of the College, the benevolence of the late CB Alexander for bequeathing the property for use and education and the late EA Hunt for his drive and commitment to bring CB Alexander's vision to reality.
