It is a great honor to highlight the activities of the Agricultural Science department for this year. The preparation of the young minds to satisfactorily become adaptable to this fast changing technology in our world today is what makes the teaching of Agricultural Science in school a great challenge.

Agricultural Science is offered from years 9-13 in the following stream; 3 year 9’s, 3 year 10’s, 3 year 11’s, 2 year 12’s and 2 year 13’s, with a total of 133 students. In 2019, the department attained 89% in year 13, 80% in year 12 and 56.7% in year 10 during external examination.

The year 2020 started with 2 dedicated teachers in the department; Mrs Shivashni Prasad and Mr Mohammed Shifaaz until Mr Rajitesh Lal relieved Mrs Prasad who went for maternity leave in September.

The 2020 academic year has been a challenging one as the pandemic brought many complications in teaching and learning for the year but fortunately, the tireless dedication and support from the department teachers were indeed awesome, especially in trying to maintain the department’s outstanding results. With that, the department is anticipating for another outstanding result this year.

I wish to convey my sincere gratitude to the administration, department teachers and members of the staff for their support and hard work.
