Farrer launched into the age of technology on Tuesday as the doors were officially thrown open on the school's all new Technical and Applied Sciences (TAS) Building.
The six room building has added an entire new dynamic to the school according to TAS head teacher Eric Reading, who believes the biggest asset will be the large open-space workshop at the centre of the building.
"That space allows for major projects, like HSC projects, to be brought into the room to access all of the tools and equipment," he said.
"We also have a great range of new technologies in there including a CNC router, lathe and engraver, as well as 3D printers, as well as a range of traditional fabrication tools and machines.
"It is a great environment to work in for the students, and a great space to teach in."
The school has been witnessing a year on year growth in students looking to specialise in metal work, with the new building enabling Mr Reading to "run more metal classes at the same time."
The project first came to light in a meeting in 2013, according to principal Clint Gallagher, who hosted a special assembly to unveil the plaque alongside Tamworth MP Kevin Anderson.
Mr Gallagher also used the occasion to officially open a new dormitory for year eight and ten boarding students, which was redeveloped in the former TAS building.
"The new building upgrade will offer a better boarding experience," he said.
"There is more space, more recreational living areas, and great modern facilities."
