We are fortunate to have our own school farm to manage and it has all that your child needs to learn agriculture. projectcs like Cattle keeping, Maggot production, Earthworm rearing (Vermiculture) Fishery, piggery, poultry, proper Banana growing among others are taught to the children at MST JUNIOR SCHOOL We are very fortunate to have our very own farm. Our pupils get the opportunity to be trained by one of Uganda’s Best Farmers such as Dr. Emma Naluyima and Mr. Iga Patrick. The farm trainings will equip the students with mordern farming skills.
The farm exposes the students to Hydroponics farming which refers to growing of crops with soilless media. A solution to all animal feed challenges. Hydroponic fodder unlocks the energy potential of grains. Can be feed on all livestock; Cattle (Dairy and Beef), Goats, Sheep, Rabbits, pigs and chicken plus Equines.
The advantages of this type of farming include:
- Requires little land
- Fodder produced in 6 days
- Reduced cost of feed
- Improved livestock performance
- Easy to setup system
- Low cost structure.
Our students are primarily exposed to modern farming methods allowing them to be productive and self-sufficient at their homes and in their communities whilst using minimal and available resources. Some of other farming methods that students are exposed to include: vermculture and Aquaponics. We attach a great importance in holistic education and agricultural education plays a vital role in exposing our students to the diversity required in individual growth and development.
