My warmest congratulations to the administration, faculty, staff, students, and alumni of Capiz National High School as you celebrate your 100th Founding Anniversary.

Your alma mater has borne witness to the significant transitions in our nation’s story: the foundation and expansion of education across the country; the dynamism of the local governments and their partner sectors; and our movement of revitalization in this era of daylight. Through all these, you have been guided by the values of resilience and solidarity. Let this event reaffirm the commitment of your alumni as dutiful citizens of our Republic—catalysts of positive change and growth in the communities and institutions you serve.

May this celebration further bolster your mission to promote knowledge and values among the youth on your watch. May you continue to mold principled students, who will be among our partners in realizing the great potential of our country.

I wish you a happy and meaningful anniversary.
