Education office steps up preparation for 2013 Palaro

THE Department of Education (DepEd) has started the preparations for this yearโ€™s edition of the Palarong Pambansa, which will be held in Lingayen, Pangasinan, from May 6 to 12.

Education Secretary Armin Luistro said the department has earmarked P136.5 million for the Palaro in which 10,000 athletes, coaches and sports officials from 17 regions are expected to participate in the countryโ€™s biggest sporting spectacle.
Though the main venue of the Palaro is the Narciso Ramos Sports Center in Lingayen, Luistro said some of the games will also be held in the neighboring cities of San Carlos and Dagupan, as well as the municipalities of Bugallon and Binmaley.

Lingayen was chosen over Laguna and Marikina after a strenuous bidding process last year.

Luistro admitted that DepEd had a hard time coming up with the decision as the other two bidders were equally qualified to host the sporting event but in the end, they chose Pangasinan.

“As an overall assessment of the three bids, we are very, very happy to announce that all three presented themselves as very ready for Palaro 2012. If it is possible, we would have three hosts for Palaro, but since that is not possible, the committee had to choose one with the hope that the other two can offer their facilities and organization in the future,” he added.

The official described the Palaro as “an important component of the basic education curriculum because it promotes physical education and sports which are part of the full development of the youth’s potential.”

Studentโ€“athletes who stand out from the Palaro, according to the DepEd, serve as feeder to the National Sports Associations for further training for international competitions.

“In a way, the results of the Palaro provide a database for a more sound and relevant school development program,” Luistro added.

Among the event to be played are arnis, athletics, archery, badminton, baseball, basketball (including womenโ€™s basketball for the second time in the Palaro), boxing, chess, football, gymnastics, sepak takraw, arnis, swimming, softball, table tennis, volleyball and taekwondo.

Special games in athletics and swimming will continue to be played in the event, Luistro said, adding they expect bigger participant in the special games compared to the previous events.

“Our purpose in the special games is to show that no kids get left behind,” the DepEd chief said.

Innovations have also been introduced for the event such as staking ranking points in tennis and having live streaming and video postings of some of the games.

Last year’s Palaro was hosted by Dapitan, Zamboanga Del Norte. In 2010, Talac played host while in the 2008 and 2009, gathering it was Puerto Princesa, Palawan and Tacloban, respectively.

But the City Government of Dapitan was criticized after it charged an entrance fee to those who want to see the games, a matter that the DepEd said it did not approve and asked the former to halt the practice.
