HOW I CHAMPIONED THE PROGRESS OF PULONG GUBAT HIGH SCHOOL
RICKY V. MANGULABNAN
The School Head is a paradoxical position. I live by the Department Education’s tenet that No Child shall be Left Behind to ensure that all students learn with the partnership of the stakeholders and the community as a whole.
Teacher quality is one of the most significant factors in student learning and as the head of our school Pulong Gubat High School, it is bested task to improve student learning by implementing mandated reforms that have considerately proven ineffective in raising student welfare.
Getting the trust and support of the community for our school involves the harmonized collaboration of the teachers, the administration and the community. This ensures the school to rate with an “instructional climate” in continuous developing an atmosphere of caring for our clienteles and trust of their parents.
Education is a fundamental sector that every country needs to develop despite its limited resources. We, in Pulong Gubat High School, value the recognition of our stakeholders and their engagement is greatly considered vital to the success and improvement of our school.
Productive collaborations demand that parents and teachers acknowledge the critical importance of each other’s participation in the life and progress of a child. Their tangible supports have able our school to construct additional school buildings to accommodate the growing number of students. The sufficient water systems and adequate electrical installation well provided for the needs of the comfort and learning of our learners.
Our appropriate set-up ancillaries and laboratories with improved internet connectivity for better information access, and improve learning environment in campus have achieved to accommodate and maximize the potentials of our students for better learning and progress.
These remarkable developments for the years of existence of PGHS are properly accounted and attested in our School Board Management Reports. These effective duties and work as the school head of our school with ceaseless collaboration of the teachers, parents, and stakeholders are relentlessly performed to continuously improve achievement in the quality of instruction and welfare condition of our learners.
These define and promote high trust and respect to the community to entrust the youth in our Barangay Pulong Gubat, Candaba Pampanga, for their holistic learning and progress in our school.
I am a firm believer that the school and community act as one unit and partnership with all sectors of the community are essential to helping learning reach their maximum potential.
Community collaboration with schools compliments and reinforces values, culture, and the learning opportunities that schools can truly provide for our students. In other words, all of us- teachers, staff parents, business non-profit, service clubs, and the like – working together, truly make a difference in the lives of our students.
