    “ Teaching is a beautiful job, as it allows you to see growth, day by day, of people entrusted to your care. It is a little like being parents, at least spiritually. It is a great responsibility ” - Pope Francis
    St. Philomena Convent High School is a place where we have committed ourselves to the vision of raising achievement, raising aspiration and enriching partnerships. It has an unique educational environment where our teachers pride in shaping characters rather than merely providing academic knowledge.
    I am honored to have the opportunity to lead this esteemed institution, which has a rich tradition of shaping the future. My role as an educator is to guide and nurture the next generation; to establish skills, to achieve health, respect, prosperity and fulfillment. As the Principal I find myself in a position where in I desire to instill within the Staff, Students and Community; a spirit of excellence so as to work together to promote growth of students.

How pleasant and thrilling it is to recall the past with the great pioneers of St. Philomena Convent High School who sensed the need of the people and took up the challenge to educate children the future with zeal and enthusiasm. Their journey began in 1946, very unassumingly, with a prayer on their lips and in their hearts...A small school, housed in one of the P.P Sanitorium bungalows on Jail Road where four sisters started teaching a few young pupils.

We, the Franciscan
Hospitaller Sisters,
provide quality education
through the dedicated teamwork
with our lay collaborators
in a Christian environment
to nurture godly, disciplined,
morally responsible and enterprising
citizens who will be an asset
and a transforming agent
to the society at large.

The Franciscan Hospitaller
Sisters of the Province of
Our Lady of the Mount, as a
Consecrated and Prophetic Community
with Lay collaborators
are called to EDUCATE
EMPOWER AND EVANGELIZE
the young, especially the poor
and to establish God‘s
kingdom of justice and peace
collaborating with the local Church,
in the spirit of Blessed Maria Clara,
and Fr. Raimundo, our founders
under the guidance of
St. Francis of Assisi, our Patron.

The Coat of arms of the school bears a book which is
a symbol of knowledge and inscribed on its pages are
the words of the Father of the Nation, Mahatma
Gandhi, “ The end of all Knowledge must be the
Building up of Character.” Indeed, this is what
education is meant to be - not just an accumulation of
knowledge, but the ability to use this knowledge for
the development of one’s character. And this brings
Light into a world that is plagued by the darkness of
ignorance and prejudice, symbolized by the burning
candle. Every Philomenite is therefore inspired to
carry the light of knowledge gained in the school to a
world that seeks peace, harmony and warmth.

 
 

High we uphold the light of St. Philomena
Burning bright and blue.
Torch bearers of our Alma Mater,
Onward we march to spread its glory
All the world through.

Our banners we will raise,
To enlighten and encourage,
Our service and faith,
As our motto we proclaim,
Forever and ever again.

High we uphold the light of St. Philomena
Burning bright and blue.
Unity, peace and justice we seek
For us and the entire nation
The Lord will see us through.

Our banners we will raise,
To enlighten and encourage,
Our service and faith,
As our motto we proclaim,
Forever and ever again (3).
