Like in almost all villages, children from Trial Farm had to commute to attend school. This was in the late seventies and eighties. A joint community effort though changed this and soon enough the children were able to attend school within their own community. This says today’s school Principal, Nazira Romero, is thanks to key players.

“They are numerous; Mr. Roque Reyes from Belize Gas, we have Mr. Elario Pech, we have Mr. Lima who is deceased and those who are the first persons who got the building from crown agents and then we have Mr. Ruben Campos who was the Area Rep at that time and they were the ones who brought the building to campus and we also have the Coyoc family who donated the land for the school and we have several women from the first PTA who were the ones in charge for fund raising, I understand that they were the ones who would visit the homes ask for donations to make sure that the school become a reality.”


It’s been quite a journey and the institution has seen several principals and teachers who have left their legacy. Today, Ramiro says they are excelling in many areas, meeting their goals as an educational institution.

“I believe that Trial Farm school is the second largest in Orange Walk District, we are close to a thousand students and right now there are forty four staff members on the school and we are achieving well; we do well in academics, we do well in festival of arts and we do well in sports, so I believe that because we have the numbers we can choose the best when it is time to go out and compete.”

“Well, I am grateful that the parents of Trial Farm Government School are quite supportive, if you had a chance to view our parade this year was one of the best years that we have had so many children and parents out for the parade and that just shows the participation and I am glad that parents see the hard work that teachers put in and are working along with us to make the school better.”

The first lessons at the school were held in a ninety by eighty feet wooden building donated the BSI and the school has a staff of six teachers and an enrollment of 190 students. They catered only for the infant division at the time. Today, the school has grown significantly to an enrollment of almost one thousand students.
