Alabel National Science High School, the Regional Science High School for Region XII celebrates its 18th Foundation Anniversary today.
Former Regional Supervisor Nenette D. Amistoso, who wrote the feasibility study leading to passage of RA 8078, creating Alabel National Science High School, once again graced the celebration.
Amistoso narrated the beginnings of the school, highlighting the hardships of those who worked for its creation. She also mentioned that she is currently fighting for the provision of stipend for the students as stated in the original plan before the school was put up.
Like a grandmother to the students, she reminded them to focus on their studies and set aside other things that might distract them from their studies.
“Enjoy the company of friends, first, and just remain friends. Saka na makipag-boyfriend o girlfriend,” Amistoso said.
Furthermore, she said that as the school celebrates its 18th year of existence the students must “focus on research.”
During the program officers of the various clubs and student organizations were installed into office, with Education Program Specialist Rebecca Gregorio as induction officer.
AlSci Alumnus (Batch 2002) and current faculty member of AlSci, Rolando Nerpiol, also shared his story about the early years of the school, of which he was a witness.
He challenged the students that despite the difficulties faced by the school the faculty and the students must continue to live up to the expectations of the people that AlSci is an excellent school.
