Once again, TPS conducted Intramural Meet to establish a venue for exercising the students acquired knowledge, skills and attitude in Physical Education. This also gave them the opportunity to enhance the values of sportsmanship, good health, and a well rounded personality.
The sports activity started with a parade headed by the TPS Drum and Lyre Corps. Students from the kindergarten level to grade 10 marched in their colored uniforms, led by their respective muses and guided by their advisers. The TPS Faculty Choir sang the national anthems of the UAE and the Philippines. Mr. Mayani led the invocation.
After the introduction of the administrators, Ms. Jocelyn M. Sollano formally opened the meet. In her speech she emphasized the relevance of the meet, not only to physical education, but also to the development and practice of values such as courage to accept defeat and gracious celebration of victory. She instructed the athletes, “Observe friendly games and do everything in the spirit of sportsmanship.”
Afterwards. Rollyzon Assuncion, a selected athlete of the TPS Basketball Team lighted the torch and Neil Ram Carlos of Grade 10 Rizal led the Oath of Sportsmanship. Mr. Jonathan Esguerra, Vice Principal inspired the group to perform with energy while maintaining camaraderie. Intermission numbers from DTAG and the Ritualo sisters added color to the opening ceremonies
