Philippine Science High School – Zamboanga Peninsula Region Campus (PSHS – ZRC) commemorated its 2nd Founding Anniversary last January 11-13, 2018 held at the Dipolog Sports Complex. This year’s theme was “PSHS – ZRC at 2: Reaching New Horizons through Unity, Determination and Dedication.”
During the opening program, Mr. Martin A. Wee, the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) Regional Director in R-IX, delivered an inspirational message and words of encouragement to the Pisay scholars and the faculty and staff.
After the opening ceremony, the scholars showed their talents in dancing and cheering as they dazzled their way for the Cheer Dance Competition.
The Search for Mr. and Ms. PSHS – ZRC 2018 commenced at six o’clock in the evening. For the second time, the empire Prudent Pegasus bagged the crown as both of their candidates emerged victorious in the said pageant.

Empires clashed as they battled in various sports events during the second day of the festivity.  However, the highlight of the day was the friendly match between the Saint Vincent College’s Girls’ Volleyball Varsity team and the PSHS-ZRC Volleyball team.

In the evening, all students flaunted their semi – formal attire and some showcased their talents and abilities during the fellowship night held at the Missio Dei Hotel.

On the last day of the Founding Anniversary, Engr. Louie C. Jamora, the Campus Director, welcomed the parents of the scholars and expressed his gratitude for the success of the annual celebration of the school. Moreover, he is joyful of the improvements made by the scholars in their academics.

Catherine Miranda, Anna Gavinelle C. Adrias and Lawrence Barquilla garnered an average of 1.50 and above and were recognized as Director’s Listers for the 2nd Quarter. They were awarded with a certificate of recognition with the presence of their parents.

A joint effort among the faculty and staff of the PSHS-ZRC along with the officers of the Supreme High Council (SHC) contributed to the success of the three-day celebration.
