    Thank you for your warm hosting of the Philippine Departments of Education and the Science and Technology top high schools. Principal Ms Linda Chan and Mr Aurelius Yeo and the entire team took time to explain SST education and brought the group to visit the facilities that help students learning of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The delegation brought away with them much food for thought and inspired to keep the youths of today engaged in the learning of sciences.


  2. Mary Ann R. Lagua says:

    This school is an ideal school for secondary students. I hope we will be able to start a linkage through internships or student exchange programs in the future and even teacher exchange.

    Thank you for sharing your strengths.
