Dear Parents and Guardians,
It is indeed an honour for me to be appointed as the Principal of Yayasan Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah (YSHHB) Secondary School. With my 32 years of experience working in 3 secondary schools and a sixth form institution in Brunei Darussalam, I am confident that, together, we are able to ensure the success of your children and also positively contribute to the development and progress of YSHHB Secondary School.
Actually, I am quite impressed with the unique design and the size of the school. The school has good and modern facilities with air-conditioned classrooms, subject-based specialised rooms, well-equipped science laboratories, attractive library, spacious canteen, a multi-purpose hall and, more importantly a conducive environment that promotes teaching and learning. Under these favourable conditions coupled with proper guidance of the teachers and the school management, I trust that your children are in good hands and they will flourish academically and holistically.
Today, achieving academic excellence will not be enough to prepare our students for the challenges of an increasingly uncertain world. In addition to academic excellence, it is important to provide holistic education, in terms of positive character development, through participation in co-curricular activities and involvement in community services.
Since joining the school in January 2016, I have many opportunities to interact with the school community. The teachers are approachable, co-operative and supportive of the school management. Students are happy, friendly and motivated. The positive ethos of the school provides an excellent academic experience for our students.
It is hoped that we will be able to work together to provide our students with the best academic opportunities and experience. At the same time, instilling in our students with positive character to prepare them to become responsible citizens who are capable of making positive contributions to the socio-economic development of Negara Brunei Darussalam.
I look forward to working closely with the school community and other stakeholders with the aim of taking YSHHB Secondary School to greater heights.
Madam Chong Li Chen
