Keeping up with the tradition,alf academic excellence
Our beloved school, the Cabatuan National Comprehensive High School, has a relatively good tradition of academic excellence. The quality of graduates that the school annually turns out, the innumerable successful alumni now working abroad and in all parts of the country, the litany of academic honors the school annually reaps through its students are mute yet eloquent testimonies to this fact
This school year, the school turns our 638 youthful graduates. Undoubtedly on the shoulders of the graduates is reposed the moral responsibility of upholding or even improving the school's tradition of academic excellence.
How can we, graduates, meet this gargantuan responsibility? The answer is the three P's - namely PRAYERS, PERSEVERANCE, and PERSPIRATION.
In our search for success in life, we should always pray to God. Let us couple our strong determination to succeed with our living faith in Him whom guides the destinies of men and nations. Without Him, we will never have total and real success.
A review of the experiences of our elder brothers and sisters who graduated from this school ahead of us reveals an inspiring fact that they have attained academic excellence through their persevering efforst They accepted problems and frustration in life as trials for them. They tried to overcome all these because what was foremost in their minds was to excel over others, hence they persevered till they attained a certain degree of excellence in their chosen profession.
Finally, our predecessors sweated it out all through those years as they worked their way through success. They always bore in mind that "Success is 99% perspiration and only 1% inspiration". With this as their formula for success, they are now savoring the sweetness of success. and are enjoying excellence in their profession.
Fellow graduates, let us always PRAY, PERSEVERE, and PERSPIRE to attain success in life and to keep up the tradition of academic excellence of our Alma Mater.
