Last Wednesday, I covered the awarding ceremony of HSBC's Five Outstanding Principals in Shangri-la Makati. The principals were chosen among HSBC Principals Leadership Enhancement and Development Program (PLP) participants who underwent rigorous training during a series of conferences that tackled leadership, management, professional development and human resource issues. Since its inception, it has trained 200 principals from various schools all over the Philippines in three separate batches.

"We at HSBC are pleased to honor these five remarkable principals who lived up to the PLP mission of making significant impact to their schools," says HSBC President and CEO Tony Cripps. "They displayed exemplary leadership and has show how they can be effective CEOs of their schools in accordance with the best-practice strategies learned from the PLP conference."

HSBC PLP, in partnership with SAS, aids principals to identify the needs and problems of their schools and community, and equips them with the necessary tools to revise the standard curriculum to address these.

SAS is a non-government organization focused on bridging the education gap in the Philippines. It is founded by philanthropist Lizzie Zobel and Margarita Delgado in 2001 to promote functional literacy and progressive teacher training in collaboration with the Department of Education. The Principal's Handbook was developed by SAS through the program and is distributed nationwide.

HSBC is a staunch supporter of education. Isn't that nice that we have a company like HSBC that gives back to our country?
