Palarong Bicol 2024: A week-long sports event for students athletes 

Legazpi City to host 6.5K Palarong Bicol delegates

The Palarong Bicol is an annual multi-sport event involving student-athletes from 17 regions, and will take place from April 27 to May 4, 2024. 

About 6,500 players and other guests from 13 Schools Division Offices (SDO) of the Department of Education-Bicol (DepEd-5) will be there.

DepEd-5 information in charge Mayflor Marie Jumamil, said in an interview on Wednesday that the Bicol Regional Athletic Association (BRAA) is holding several meetings and technical talks to come up with general and specialized rules for each sport.

The Schools Division Office of Legazpi agreed to be the event’s main host, SDO Albay, SDO Ligao City, and SDO Tabaco City would pitch in. 

“The dates of the week-long sports event were thought out to make sure that outdoor activities would go smoothly and to avoid conflicts with local events like the Rodeo Masbateño,” she explained.

Moreover, Jumamil said that child protection desks will be set up in each billeting quarter to make sure that learning athletes are safe and any cases of child abuse that might happen might be dealt with.

“The safety of our athletes is the most important thing to us,” Jumamil emphasized. In order to maintain the event’s cleanliness and safety, she also suggested creating a Clean and Green Committee to set up kid-friendly stations.

Regional Director of DepEd-Bicol Gilbert Sadsad said that the Palarong Bicol is an essential part of the student’s future because it helps them work together and grow.

“Every year, our Palaro gets better by adding new features meant to keep our students safe and healthy while participating in this sporting event.” 

“We are sure that the hard work we put into these preparations will help our students grow and develop into competitive individuals and good citizens of our country,” Sadsad stated.
