One of the key components of AEC is the pupil’s project. Most of the activities in the past were often involved in teaching P6 pupils skills that they need in their daily lives
So in 2010 after consultation with the partner schools amd communities we decided to involve parents of Primary Class 6 (P6) in the learning of the skills that were previously only learnt by pupils in agriculture and science.
Certain skills taught by AEC like family planning, nutrition, compost making and compost application among others are more likely to be applied easily by parents directly than by the children. If both pupil and parent have the same information they may find it easier to support each other as a family team.
