BAMSI donates to Government High

Agriculture teacher Mr. Yosvanis Cruz, BAMSI President, Senator, the Hon. Dr. Erecia Hepburn-Forbes, Principal of Government High School Ms. Pavia Rolle , Manager of Academic Affairs (BAMSI) Ms. Brandly Mortimer and Head of the Agriculture Department Mr. Macneil Parris.

In the summer of 2022, the Bahamas Agriculture & Marine Science Institute (BAMSI) hosted its very first, week-long summer camp in New Providence using the classroom and grounds of Government High School as their base of operations.

Some 60 boys, girls and teens participated in the camp that featured visits to several farms, agricultural and heritage sites throughout New Providence, including Blue Fields Farm, Clifton Heritage, and the Maillis Farm in Southern New Providence.

As a way of saying thank you to Government High School for providing a safe space to broaden the experience of young Bahamians and allowing BAMSI to create an enjoyable atmosphere where campers could learn about agriculture all while having fun, BAMSI officials donated a laptop computer to the school on Thursday to support the research being conducted by students in the agriculture program. The camp proved to be such a success that two students have since enrolled in BAMSI.
