The member schools and management committee representatives were then acknowledged for their active involvement and support from the preparation up to the event proper.
In observance of the health protocol implementation, Mr. Michael Kasilag, Institutional Safety, Security and Emergency Services Office (ISSESO) Director, reminded everyone of the proper wearing of masks and that the participants’ access throughout the campus will be monitored .
