Classes for Grade 7 students at the Philippine Science High School (PISAY) Main Campus started last August 15, 2018. Having spent more than four months of summer vacation for the first time ever, my son was already bored of staying at home and raring to go to school. It didn’t help that all of his grade school classmates and friends already started high school two months prior.
To be honest, Justin didn’t want to transfer to a new school. It actually broke his heart to leave his classmates from the LSGH Advanced Class who had been like brothers to him for the past 5 years, from Grade 2 to Grade 6 as they all skipped Grade 1 due to the K-12 program. It took a while before we could convince him to try Pisay.
We were glad that his first day in his new school turned out okay. He was happy to see his Grade 7-Emerald classmates again exactly five days after orientation. And like in grade school, he is now always excited to go to school to see his newfound high school friends and classmates.
