“You are young with the future before you. Remember the young boy who arrived in Manila many years ago, a stranger with nothing to his name…

If I can do it, the young people of today can do it too.”

With the new and conducive environment for learning, children perform better in school and are more inspired to learn, while teachers also become more effective.

Our School Buildings are fully equipped with:
