The CBC (Competency Based Curriculum) setup a requirement in which our Grade 6 pupils were required to engage in rearing chicken for their national examination assessment. For this project to work the school bought 2 hens and 28 two weeks old chicks.
The Grade 6 boys take turns in groups to feed, vaccinate, water, clean the coop and in weighing. The boys are passionate and enthused about the project. They always visit the coop early in the morning when they arrive to school.
