One of the advocacies of St. Stephen’s High School, being a Christian educational institution that envisions itself to be a school after God’s heart and a lighthouse to the community is producing good and quality readers – developing the passion or love for reading.
With the above objective, this academic year’s Parent-Teacher Seminar for the Elem. was focused on educating the parents with the guiding principles on motivating their children to read in partnership with the school especially with the teachers.
The Children’s Anniversary Celebration last Sept 22, 2013 was indeed a moment to remember for each one of us. The program was well attended inspite of the heavy rains. Distinguished guests grace the occasion. Ptr. Don Huan, our St. Stephen’s Parish’s associate pastor, blessed us with an opening prayer and prayer of blessings for our Sunday School teachers in recognition of Teachers’ Day. Then our very own SSHS school directress, Mrs. Marianne Tan inspired us through her testimony of how the Sunday School ministry has made a great impact in her life. She has given us a timeless advice that we need to keep memorizing God’s word, be prayerful and be a lighthouse wherever we are planted as her opening remarks.

St. Stephen’s High School aims to produce or raise good readers and eventually send more learners to the best/acclaimed universities of the country ready and armed with all the skills they need to successfully finish their chosen fields of studies. The school believes that one of the best avenue that would help usher the learners to where they dream to go is providing them the rich opportunities and resources to learn with.
