Panawagan para sa kontribusyon ng mga personal na sanaysay para sa Hay skul: mga sanaysay ukol sa hayskul sa Pilipinas

Ang saya ng high school 
Same in yours and my school 
Di na mapapantayan 
T’yak ganyan ang buhay na sadyang makulay 
Alaala kaylan man

-Sharon Cuneta, “High School Life” (1981)

Kung hindi ka repeater, apat na taon lang dapat noon ang high school. Hindi tulad ngayon, anim na dahil sa lintek na K to 12. Pero andami-dami nating kuwento noon tungkol sa kabalbalan, sa mga kaaway at minamahal na mga titser at kaklase, sa pakikipagsapakan at pakikipagtarayan, sa pagmamahal sa isa lang, tapos sa dalawa, tapos sa iba pa at maraming-marami pang ibang totoong kuwento na ating naranasan, na hanggang ngayon, nakabaon sa ating gunita. Minsan nababalikan ang mga kuwentong ito sa mga high school reunion. Tatawa tayo nang tatawa na parang bago sa atin ang mga kuwento kahit na alam naman natin lahat ang kuwento, at gasgas na ito, honest, kada reunion.
