We believe in holistic students

 

Meet Teacher Carina

The ability to produce holistic students is what most schools dream of, however, achieving this reality requires action. Waiting for that grand opportunity to get started often amounts to naught because they very rarely present themselves.

Holy Faith Convent Couva recently introduced Agriculture to its curriculum with the goal of producing a more versatile individual. Convincing the students to adopt this new subject area, however, will require the support of people who believe in it. That’s where teacher Carina comes in!

While Agriculture is not her field she understands its value and has decided to show her support by getting involved and encouraging the students to adopt the subject. She supports the vision of the school of developing holistic students.

We are able to sell all of our produce right here on the compound and the nearby supermarkets are willing to take whatever we have,” these are the sentiments of teacher Carina.

But what if she could grow her produce organically? What if her students could have the opportunity to learn about sustainable farming and reduce wastage?

What if those students could see waste as an unexplored opportunity?

What if there’s an opportunity to help create future farmers?

Well, that’s where we come in! Holy Faith Convent has embraced vermicomposting and it is our mission to help answer these burning questions as we continue to help secure food producers for the future.

Meet Brent!

Meet Brent!

A firm believer in agriculture! An innovator and also a teacher at Tabaquite RC.

The level of agriculture displayed at this primary school is commendable. The students are exposed to a variety of livestock, crops and agricultural techniques which set the tone for a technology-based agriculture program. The addition of vermicomposting has further diversified and expanded the technological experience for the students.

All of this lovely work is maintained by Mr. Bent and his loyal ‘Future Farmers’! He is continually in search of new ideas to optimize his operations and reduce the cost of production. His ability to recreate and tweak ideas that he often finds online saves time and money.

Enjoy the slide show which highlights ongoing work at the school.
