The DOST-Philippine Science High School (PSHS) System has inaugurated its new building located north of the PSHS Main Campus at Agham Road, Diliman, Quezon City last December 9, 2015.

The blessing and inauguration was well attended by members of the Board of Trustees led by USec. Rowena Cristina Guevara and members of the Executive Committee, with invited guests and visitors.

Named as PSHS System Training and Administration Center, it houses the Office of the Executive Director, Finance and Administrative Division, Research, Policy Formulation and Academics Division, training facilities and mini-dormitory.

The construction and completion of the Center marks another significant milestone in PSHS history.  With its improved and modern state-of-the-art facilities, the PSHS leadership and management is confident of a more improved delivery of services to its clientele and stakeholders.

The construction of the Center was started during the administration of former PSHS System Executive Director, Dr. Josette T. Biyo.

The System’s Office, composed of the Office of the Executive Director (OED) and its two divisions, held office for a long time at the PSHS Main Campus since its establishment in 1998.

A short program was held after the sumptuous lunch.  After the program, Dr. Larry Cabatic, thanked all those who have extended their support and help for the realization of the OED building.  He affirmed the collaborative effort extended by everyone that made this dream a reality.

The new building is more than just providing a home for the OED family, but more so in building a meaningful and harmonious relationship among everyone,Ms. Maria Concepcion Sakai, Finance and Administrative Division Chief, said.

Father Joseph Wang of the Order of the Ministers of Infirm, officiated the blessing ceremony.  (mrollet)
