A group of Business Studies and Enterprise students from Mount Sinai International Schools on Friday toured Peacock Seed production company in Salima where among other things they wanted to appreciate how seeds get processed before going on the market.
Speaking during the tour, Ahmed Nsiya who is the Business Studies and Enterprise teacher, emphasized that theory works better when there is practical attached to it hence they decided to visit the place so that students can appreciate the whole process of seed production.
“Theoretically these students have wide knowledge in as far as production of goods is concerned, so we came here for them to practically appreciate whatever they learnt in class,” he said.
Nsiya described the tour as “helpful” saying the students interacted with experts and they will be able to apply in class the knowledge they have acquired.
One of the students, Lorrain Chilemba, echoed the sentiments made by her teacher saying she will apply the knowledge in class and in real life as she dreams to become an entrepreneur.
Peacock Enterprises Manager Director, Felix Jumbe, said it is very encouraging to see young boys and girls showing interest to become entrepreneurs.
When sharing his experience on how he became an entrepreneur Jumbe also advised students to live by their dreams saying entrepreneurship has potential of creating wealth and developing the country.
Peacock Seeds is the first seed production company owned by a Malawian.
