The ultimate basin of human educational formation is the community. We believe that the school, being a product of the community, has responsibility to reach out to it so that the symbiosis of developmental education is not hampered. Students come from different family background and are formed in different schools. They also interact daily with other people in the community. Whether the students understand their community or not remains to be a questions nonetheless.
And so, it is the rationale of the HIGHER EDUCATION DEPARTMENT provides a venue for them by which they are given the opportunity to know the reality and the dynamics of our basic sector of the society. This encounter with the poor in our society will eventually instill in them the value of patrimony and love of God. With a clear perception of what's going on the community, they will be guided towards a course that will help uplift of their countrymen and redeem the environment.
