Genuine learning is achieved by applying what has been learned. Knowledge is just a mere fat and academic achievement is just a record if a learner could not make the right decision for the appropriate actions. It is the attitude, not the aptitude, which will determine the altitude. The right decision and actions are the determinants of success.
Undoubtedly, records reflect the capability to fulfill the requirement of a subject. Records signify commitment and due diligence bestowed to assigned classwork and more importantly, courtesy to the teachers. Records are indeed a valuable indicator of attitude as well.
Higher School ng UMak provides academic programs that incorporate the development of character through a series of lectures, drills and performance tests. Beyond the academic program is the establishment of a “teaching and learning” relationship between teachers and learners that value good conduct.
Consider determination and gratitude in your journey as part of the HSU Community. It will not be long when you would realize that efficient and remarkable learning transpires through the practical application of academic programs along with profound character formation.
