The funding for this farm project is provided by the Biakoye District Assembly.

Field Inspection

After the inspection of the farm, The DCE expressed her deep appreciation to the school’s management for their prompt responses, commitment, and dedication to the project.

She emphasized that, as part of her efforts to elevate the Assembly’s position in the District Assemblies Assessment Ranking from the 69th position to the top rank, it is imperative to implement measures and projects that will contribute to this milestone.

The initiation of the Biakoye District Secondary School Farm Project is motivated by several factors, one of which is to enhance food security within Senior High Schools in the district. It also aims to instil in the students, during their formative years, a strong appreciation for farming to ensure sustained food self-sufficiency in the district in the near future. This project will additionally address the nutritional needs of the students.

She also charged the Committee with the task of developing a comprehensive plan that will also position the BOSTECH SHS FARM PROJECT properly as a MODEL FARM which will serve as a tourist attraction site as well.

This initiative is designed to stimulate the students’ interest in the agricultural sector and its value chain, while nurturing and instilling in them the ethics of Adam’s first occupation.
