P8.5-M Subsidy For 17 Schools

Half a million pesos from the Department of Education (DepEd) awaits selected public high schools in the country that continue to support and train athletes to represent the country in various local and international competitions.
DepEd Secretary Armin Luistro said that the DepEd has earmarked P8.5 million as subsidy to the 17 regional schools that offer a special program in sports to enable them to effectively deliver services to student athletes who will one day stand out in competitions here and abroad.
“There is cost in developing worldclass athletes and the schools are the natural breeding ground of grassroots talents,” Luistro said. The P500,000 training subsidy, he explained, aims to help schools to fully harness the athletic prowess of students.

As stated in DepEd Order 28 series of 2012, the additional subsidy which augments the schools’ maintenance and operating expense will go to the training of teachers and administrators on relevant topics in sports.
Luistro explained that it is also intended to procure instruction al materials, sports supplies and athletic uniforms as well as for student development activities such as training, workshops, participation in DepEdapproved competitions including travel allowance of students during trainings and competitions.
The 17 SPS schools which will receive the subsidy are Ilocos Norte National High School in Region I, Cagayan National High School (NHS) in Region 2, Victoria NHS in Region 3, Lopez National Comprehensive HS in
Region 4-A, Palawan National School in Region 4-B, Camarines Sur NHS in Region 5, Iloilo NHS in Region 6, Negros Oriental NHS in Region 7, Palo NHS in Region 8, Zamboanga Sibugay NHS in Region 9, Bukidnon NHS in Region 10, Sto. Tomas NHS in Region 11, General Santos City NHS in Region 12, Bayugan National Comprehensive HS in CARAGA, Datu Paglas NHS in Autonomous Region Muslim Mindanao, Tabuk NHS in Cordillera Administrative Region, and Muntinlupa Science HS in the National Capital Region.
Luistro said that to ensure that the financial subsidy is rationally utilized and be recommended for its continued release, the recipient schools are directed to conduct a yearly mentoring program to other schools within the division/region which intend to implement the same sports program.
