After spending more than one and a half decades of my professional career in the private sector, I feel very privileged to be writing this message as a civil servant. To be part of the country’s leading high school is definitely a defining moment for me. The school just celebrated its 55th anniversary and have spent the last 55 years continuing to build on its legacy. Now PSHS Main Campus has become the bar in which other science high schools in the country are measured against.
As a school, much has changed in the past 55 years. From being the lone campus to being just one of the 16 campuses forming the PSHS System, the Main Campus was able to transform itself to adjust to the changing times. The workforce and the students almost doubled in number the past 3 years, and the school have embraced diversity and gender equality. The school is now ISO 9001:2015 certified and will continue its efforts for continuous quality improvement in the years to come.
It is also important to note what has not changed: PSHS Main Campus still adheres to its core values of Truth, Excellence, and Service to Nation. The school maintains its commitment to produce exceptional graduates who exhibit excellence in both STEM and Humanities, leadership, integrity and transparency, and the unwavering drive to be of service to the country.
Looking ahead, the focus is on improving the way the school delivers its service. PSHS Main Campus will further build on its strength, in having the students and employees acquire more skills to share knowledge and create innovation and in bringing positive change to the community. The physical state of the campus will continue to be improved and maintained to ensure that both mind and body of students and employees have the right environment to function optimally.
As the campus director, I am very excited for what lies ahead for PSHS Main Campus and I truly believe that the best is yet to come.
