The Colonial College and Training Farms (Limited).

Hollesley Bay, Suffolk.

Sketch of the Colonial College and Train Farms

Founded in January 1887, under the auspices of Agents-General for the Colonies, leading Members of the Royal Colonial Institute, the Head-Masters of Eton, Westminster, Shrewsbury, Marlborough, Clifton, Haileybury, &c.

The College provides for those intending to Emigrate such Practical Training as will test their fitness and qualify them for Colonial Life,

It is situated on its own estate in a fine and very healthy position on the Sea-coast.

Farms of over 1,800 acres are carried on by the College, for the instruction of its Students, who thus have unrivalled facilities for becoming practically, as well as theoretically, acquainted with all branches of Agriculture, and with Horse, Cattle, and Sheep Breeding &c., on a large scale.

Instruction is also given in Dairying, Veterinary Science and Practice, Chemistry, Geology and Mineralogy, Forestry, Horticulture, Land Surveying and Building Construction, Book-keeping, Engineer's, Smith's Carpenter's, Wheelwright's, and Harnessmaker's Work, Riding, Ambiance, and various other subjects necessary to the Young Colonist.

Many Students of the College are settled in almost every part of the Empire, with whom, as well as with other trustworthy Correspondents able to render valuable assistance to new-comers, regular communication is kept up.

The work of the Institution has been periodically recognised as of great value by Statesmen of the highest rank at home and in the Colonies.
