  2. juanito m. albarico says

    thank you very much for good information.

  3. Carlos S Belicano says

    ang asbi ang second set ng male uniform is OFF WHITE, pero dun sa color specification nakalagay NOT LIGHTER THAN BEIGE 1 and NOT DaRKER THAN BEIGE 2, ANO BA TALAGA? BEIGE OR OFF WHITE? kasi pag sinabi mong off white hindi sya BEIGE. so wag syang i compare dun sa beige. Ang OFF WHITE ay parang white lng din na naluma ang kulay.

    Promotion of Principals be given to all on a reclass basis based on the olden times . That provided a school principal served for one year, they could be promoted to the next level. As such, the work of a Principal nowadays is so STRENOUS , HECTIC & time consuming…
    To the new president, please listen to our plea. Thank you!
