TO provide the young ones with competence to excel in sports, understand and apply the concept of teamwork and the value of sportsmanship are what the “One Student, One Sports” program of the local government here advocates.

The program which is anchored on the city government’s thrust to build a city of champions will also enhance the sports program of the Department of Education (DepEd) and strengthen collaboration between the two government entities as the LGU consolidates its new and existing sports programs under one umbrella campaign.

Executive Order 2016-048, which seeks to enhance the Department of Education (DepEd) sports program by establishing and implementing the “One Student, One Sports” program of the city government anchored on the thrust to build a city of champions was issued on November 4, last year by Mayor John G. Bongat, and will take effect this school year 2017-2018.

The executive order details how the program will operate as it also defines the roles, functions and responsibilities of each partnering entities, specifically the city government of Naga, the DepEd, and the city’s 27 barangay councils together with the Education, Scholarships and Sports Office (ESSO) and the City Events, Protocol and Public Information Office (CEPPIO).

NAGA CITY — There was so much drive to go for the gold, but never did the athletes and their coaches forget about honesty and fair play.

This was the common observation by Mayor John G. Bongat and other officials of the city government and the Department of Education here on how athletes, coaches and other sports personnel fared in Palarong Bicol 2016 that ended without any protest filed for misrepresentation or switching of players and other forms of cheating by any of the participating delegations.

Ernani Suron, head of Naga City Sports Office, reported that during the post-game assessment meeting between Engr. Ronald Asis, DepEd regional sports coordinator, and the tournament managers it was revealed that “no protest of any form was filed in so far as the conduct of the weeklong regional games is concerned.”
