Student Farmers

Student Farmers When the missionaries arrived and started teaching, their instruction was not confined, however, to the ‘three R’s.’ Effectively, they were teaching to the Head, Heart and Hand. That meant getting your hands dirty in learning farming skills (in addition to the regular academics and religious instruction.) This teaching method started from the very beginning; Betsey Stockton, then the Mission Seminary at Lahainaluna; Hilo Boarding School; Kamehameha Schools, Punahou and others had manual labor on their respective farms, as well as courses in agriculture. (Lahainaluna students punched ‘in’ and out’ to keep track of their daily hours worked for their room and board.)
