SJCBI held its Intramurals 2019 with the theme, “Kahusayan ng mga Josefino sa Palakasan, Akademiko, at Sosyo-Kultural tungo sa Pagkakaisa ng mga Kultura,” with the College President, Rev. Fr. Gerard Ariston P. Perez officially opening the event last August 29, 2019.
A holy mass presided by the College President with the School Chaplain, Rev. Fr. Arsenio dela Cruz at the SJCBI grounds began the three-day affair and followed by the opening program with the lighting of torches and raising of banners by select athletes.
The opening remarks given by Mrs. Marissa Q. Palomares, Vice President for Administration and the inspirational talk by Fr. Perez both focused on the value of playing fair, accepting defeat and staying humble in times of victory; students are also encouraged to enjoy and make friends above all.
The programs include the Zumba Competition by the Elementary Department and Cheerdance Competition by the High School Department. The Yellow Bicolano (Elementary), The Blue Waray (Junior HS), and The White Pangasinense (Senior HS) bagged first places.
Not even the Typhoon Jenny, which caused the postponement of this event, could wane the looks of excitement and joy in the faces of the Josephians.
