Message to Fellow PSO Teachers Ms. Ivy Jan O. Simbala Philippine School Bahrain High School Teacher of the Month

When I first came to Bahrain, I was not looking for a “greener pasture”. I just leapt at the chance to leave home, go on a solo adventure in an entirely new country, and simply live my own life.  After 10 years, I find myself re-assessing where I am now and asking myself if it is for the same reasons that I chose to stay here for so long.

I came to Bahrain filled with hope.  Hope that things will be better in school.  And yes, we have better facilities, an environment more conducive to learning and an opportunity to learn other educational systems and international curricula.  Great challenges awaited me in Bahrain.  Coping with homesickness, a culture shift, as well as the demand for a new job are simply taxing.  Yet, I stayed… for ten long years I stayed.

School of the Month Philippine School Bahrain: A Foundation of Wisdom in the Kingdom of Bahrain

Competence, commitment, creativity, and compassion; these are the four core values Philippine School Bahrain instills in their students and teachers. Being the only Philippine School Overseas (PSO) in Bahrain, it envisions to be a leading educational institution excelling in developing students to become competent, creative, committed and compassionate individuals.

Before 1995, many Filipino children in Bahrain experience difficulties due to shortage of seats in affordable schools.  At the same time, those who succeeded in enrolling found themselves handicapped in subjects like Filipino, Social Studies and Philippine History when they returned home and joined the Philippine education mainstream.

Cognizant of these problems, the Philippine School (Bahrain) aims to provide quality education to Filipino children in the Kingdom of Bahrain based on the curriculum prescribed by the Philippine Department of Education to facilitate the smooth integration of home-bound children in the mainstream of Philippine education system.
