The one week competition in Science for gifted students in the ASEAN plus Three Science Olympiad (AJPTS) was participated by 25 teams from ASEAN plus Taiwan, China (Beijing), Korea, Sweden, and Nigeria. The competition focused on laboratory skills and analyses in Biology, Chemistry, and Physics. The Philippines was represented by two teams composed of 3 students from PSHS Main Campus, and 3 students from our very own PSHS-Western Visayas Campus. From WVC, Magin Benedict Ferrer, Justin Togonon and Janelle Sentina composed the competing team, coached by Mr. William Laride. The competition took place at the Korea Science Academy in Busan (KSA) with the KSA professors serving as judges for the individual events, and international evaluators for the paper presentation. 

The Philippines (PSHS Students) again got the CHAMPIONSHIP TROPHY! The scores are as follows:

Biology: PSHS Main- Gold, PSHS WVC-Silver (20%)
Chemistry: PSHS Main- Gold, PSHS WVC - Silver (20%)
Physics- PSHS Main - no award, PSHS WVC- Bronze (20%)
Paper Presentation- PSHS WVC Best paper (40%)

Average of two teams was the highest score out of the 25 teams from 13 participating countries making the Philippines the Grand Champion for the second time. In Brunei last year, was the first time PSHS was declared as the champion, making the team as defending champion this year .

The average score of the two PSHS Teams was the highest out of the 13 participating countries. Korea came 2nd, and Singapore 3rd.

The winning team came home with this remark: "Win or lose, we will all go back to the Philippines as different persons-much better persons. And we are now ready to compete in any international competition."
