Slide 2 Presidents Report Mrs. Zenaida Lopez-De Asis President, QNHS Alumni Foundation, Inc. 2005-2007 Slide 3 THE GLORY that was the old Quezon National High School. Slide 4 QUEZON HIGH THEN AND NOW THEN Tayabas High School of 1902 established by the Thomasites when they first landed in the Philippines, evolved into Quezon Provincial High School and now Quezon National High School. Slide 5 QUEZON HIGH THEN AND NOW It was established in 1902 and is considered as the second oldest high school in the country following the Tarlac High School after barely two weeks. Slide 6 QUEZON HIGH THEN AND NOW Tayabas High School is covered by 2 Transfer Certificate of Titles (TCT). The first TCT No. 0212-8 has a total area of 50,028 square meters. This is the title that covers the now known Alcala Sports Complex. The second TCT No. 0-347-10 is divided into 2 lots. Slide 7 QUEZON HIGH THEN AND NOW Lot A has an area of 4,159 square meters more or less. Lot B has an area of 3,116 square meters These two parcels of land with a combined total area of 7,275 square meters cover the Gabaldon Bldg. and the present school campus. Slide 8 QUEZON HIGH THEN AND NOW From a student population of 49, the QNHS now has exactly 9421 number of students and 368 faculty and staff. It is now considered the biggest single campus high school in the country. Slide 9 QUEZON HIGH THEN AND NOW The Sports Complex then was under the supervision of QNHS serving as venue of all sports activities not only in Lucena and Quezon Province but also in the whole Southern Tagalog and Palarong Pambansa Sports Competition. Those were the days. Today, Quezon Highers can no longer use this sports complex freely as this is now under the direct control and supervision of the provincial government. Slide 10 QUEZON HIGH THEN AND NOW Quezon High can no longer use it freely without getting authority from the provincial government. The unsolved riddles of where to hold some classes surmount. Although the rooms under the two grandstands thereat are allowed to be used as classrooms to house some classes, still these rooms cannot complement sound solutions to the problems we are currently facing. Slide 11 QUEZON HIGH THEN AND NOW QNHS with its number of about 10,000 students has 97 available classrooms. To house these students Quezon High has to have additional 110 classrooms. And this has been the nagging problem our school administration and the Alumni Foundation is trying to address. Slide 12 As a palliative solution to this, the administration adopted a double shift class program wherein classes are held from Monday to Saturday. Immediate construction of a building with 27 classrooms is urgently needed. Slide 13 QUEZON HIGH THEN AND NOW The direct supervision of the provincial government in the big and small grandstands marred QNHS from using it for its daily endeavors. Adding to the burden is that water and electrical consumption of the sports complex are being charged and paid by the school out of its budgetary appropriation for Maintenance and Other Operating Expenses (MOOE) coming from the National Government Slide 14 QUEZON HIGH THEN AND NOW Theres also an uncontrolled ingress and egress of the public. Moreover, ambulant vendors using the gates along the sports complex freely roam around the campus. These are the worsening conditions we are facing today and these could only be addressed thru the help of the Provincial Government. Slide 15 A GLIMPSE OF OUR ACCOMPLISHMENTS (From Sept. 24, 2005 to Dec. 2007) The Board of Trustees and Officers of Quezon National High School Alumni Foundation Incorporated were elected into office on September 24, 2005.

High school days and high school life the best days and the happiest and memorable days of our youth! Its pay back time Lets bring back the glory of Quezon High! These are the words often heard from Alumni here and abroad. Slide 20 Presidents Report-QNHS Alumni Foundation, Inc. Barely a month upon election into the position as President, a group of eight (8) teachers came to my residence and presented their complaints against the newly appointed Principal, Mr. Emilio S. Ulpindo, demanding his immediate dismissal and/or replacement. Slide 21 Presidents Report-QNHS Alumni Foundation, Inc. Knowing that everybody has the right for a day in court, and everything could be settled on a proper forum and dialogue, a. On June 6, 2005, together with the Chairman Atty. Bella Amilhasan we called a General Meeting of all teachers and employees at the school gymnasium with the principal. All accusations and issues were taken up one by one, with the principal presenting his position and replying thereto point by point. Slide 22 Presidents Report-QNHS Alumni Foundation, Inc. Believing that everything was properly explained and the accused and accusers were enlightened on all issues, that meeting ended with everyone shaking hands and several even congratulated us for solving the nagging problem within the school workforce. Slide 23 Presidents Report-QNHS Alumni Foundation, Inc. However, after a few weeks we were informed that the demand for the removal of the principal continued and poison letters circulated all over not only inside the campus but the whole of Lucena as well. The media even took the issue and the same was a daily morning item on both television and broadcast media. Slide 24 Presidents Report-QNHS Alumni Foundation, Inc. B.

The dialogue was fully covered by both television and radio stations. The procedure of presenting the issues one by one with the principal replying and presenting his side one by one was again done. Slide 27 Presidents Report-QNHS Alumni Foundation, Inc. Failing to present any concrete evidence to substantiate their accusations of Php 13 Million malversation by the new principal the complaining group stopped short the proceedings and just demanded the removal of the principal from Quezon National High School. Slide 28 Presidents Report-QNHS Alumni Foundation, Inc. The dialogue ended with the School Superintendent Mrs. Azucena Romulo losing her cool and for 45 minutes reprimanded and lectured this complaining group on proper decorum and rights and privileges of people in the teaching profession and government services. Slide 29 Presidents Report-QNHS Alumni Foundation, Inc. Up to this time, after more than two years, the passion of these group of teachers of removing the principal in office had not abated. It was revealed that they are the same people who are instrumental in harassing five (5) previous principals in Quezon High that led them to leave the service unceremoniously, retire early, and/or request transfer to another assignment.
