‘Numbers low but quality high’


Share post:

THE NUMBERS MAY NOT BE large, but the quality of work from students in the Samuel Jackman Prescod Polytechnic’s (SJPP) agricultural produce and livestock programmes has come in for high praise.

Speaking during the SJPP’s agricultural open day yesterday, principal Hector Belle said the four programmes in agriculture had moderate numbers.

The Polytechnic offers the diploma in agriculture as well as certificate programmes in livestock and animal husbandry, horticulture and landscaping, and crop husbandry.

“It is not one of the areas I am happy with . . . . We do not see the numbers, but the students we see here are quality students,” he added.
