spir­its as com­pe­ti­tion progress in the week­long sports event backed by the Depart­ment of Ed­u­ca­tion and in part­ner­ship with the Philip­pine Sports Com­mis­sion.

For this year’s Palarong Pam­bansa, DepEd-CAR was able to get a bud­get of P6.2 mil­lion, com­pared to the P12 mil­lion bud­get the re­gion re­ceived last year.

The re­duc­tion in the re­gion’s Palaro bud­get this year is un­der­stand­able be­cause of the shorter dis­tance from the city to the Palaro venue, thus, the re­gion was able to source out some ad­di­tional P2 mil­lion from its reg­u­lar bud­get to aug­ment the funds that were taken from the cen­tral of­fice for the stag­ing of the premier sports com­pe­ti­tion.

As of 2:27 p.m. of April 17, South­ern Lu­zon Re­gion is cur­rently in first place with 5-1-4, with the Na­tional Cap­i­tal Re­gion at sec­ond place af­ter bag­ging 4-4-1.

Cordillera, Ca­gayan Val­ley, South­ern Ta­ga­log, and West­ern Visayas have three gold medals each.
