Present at the handing over was District Agriculture Coordinator Sergio Hernandez. The principal of the school Abel Celiz received the piglets.
Chairman of the School’s Board of Management Valentin Carrillo, teachers, and Extension Officers of the Ministry were also present.
The Belize High School of Agriculture is located between the villages of San Lazaro and Trinidad in the Orange Walk District.
The school was founded in 1984 and functions under the Ministry of Education and caters to students from surrounding villages, offering them an agriculture-based education.
It is one of the few schools that focuses on agriculture and its students regularly harvest produce that is consumed in the school cafeteria and offered for sale to the public.
