AT THE CLOSE OF THE SCHOOL YEAR in March 2010, the Philippine Science High School – Bicol Region Campus had the new girls dormitory blessed by Rev. Fr. Bert Lillo;

the new dormitory is an addition to the already completed boys dormitory,

the extension of which was blessed earlier in the school year that passed. Both buildings are located in the far end of the campus.



Besides such buildings, the ACA II has also been completed towards the end of the second quarter, giving the students the opportunity to enjoy laboratory experiments in subjects such as Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Research, not to mention the computer laboratories which have also been expanded. The building also boasts of “state-of-the-art” comfort rooms according to Mrs. Elsie Ferrer during one Monday morning rites. Apart from the laboratories, the building, on its third floor, also has the so-called fully air-conditioned audio-visual room with more than a hundred chairs and a centralized aircon.

During the summer of this year, construction workers have begun to build the school’s gymnasium located at the far end of the girls’ dormitory. The gymnasium will be a favorite venue of sports events during intramural games as there will be ball courts and a swimming pool, hence seniors need not go out of the campus for their swimming lessons in Physical Education classes.

With the start of the School Year 2010-2011, another building to greet visitors and guests before they get to the school’s realm is being constructed on what used to be a terrain for pineapple and other plants near the big tree, across the right wing of the Academic Building I (ACAI). The new building will be called the Administration Building where the following offices will be housed: Supply Office, Administrative Office, Finance and Budget Offices, Office of the Auditor. The first phase of the construction of the building ends in October this year.

Things have certainly changed since 2002 when this part of Mt. Isarog was all woods and grasses that gave sanctuary to some animals—both wild and domesticated.
