Philippines School Doha opened its doors in October 1992 with only 33 students in a rented building in Doha. Duly registered as Philippine School in Doha, Inc., this institution has come a long way with its almost 4,000 enrollees at present. And this opening of new campus signifies a greater future that awaits the school and its students.
Edgar V. Bondoc, PSD-BOT Chairman said that “The permanent school building of PSSD is erected as a symbol of the united and shared vision of its founding parents.” “An edifice where the spring of knowledge and wisdom flows where the seat of Filipino culture and values emerges and where the legacy of service and excellence remains. It’s time to concretize the vision. It’s time to leave a legacy to the Filipino students in Qatar.”
What wonderful words to inspire the students to never stop reaching for success, and the parents to continue supporting the institution and its vision.
