Teachers, principals shoot basketball
This is the tagline of the 1st. Inter-Color Basketball Tournament for Teachers of the newly established City Schools Division of Mabalacat (CSDM) which started last February 22 at the Don Bosco Academy.
With the primary objective of promoting sportsmanship and camaraderie among teachers, principals and non-teaching staff of CSDM, the league will also display the shooting and dribbling prowess of educators and their positive disposition and teamwork.
Seven competing teams for the league are the Mabalacat East District, Mabalacat North, Mabalacat South, Mabalacat City College, Team Sir Marquez, Madapdap Resttlement High School and MauCom Air Dragons.
“The City government of Mabalacat will always support you, as I always say, whenever you need me, just call my name and I’ll be there,” added the City Mayor in his message during the opening program.
According to Dr. Nicolas T. Capulong, the City Schools Division Superintendent of Mabalacat, he gave his approval for the conduct of the basketball tournament knowing that it will serve its purpose of connecting together the teachers and non-teaching staff of the division.
The organizers of the said tournament are Dr. Ferdinand Nanquil of Dau Elementary school, Sonny de Guzman of Bical School and Alvaro Pabustan of Magsaysay School.
