August 17,2012-Lormanians express their disappointment towards the postponement of the much awaited school intramurals on August 25. The sudden change in schedule was implemented due to the two-day suspension of classes last August 15 and 16.
The Student Affairs Office decided to reschedule the event for a single day to prevent further reduction of lecture hours. The office added that one day will be sufficient to achieve the essence of the intramurals.
“Athletes, participants and the entire school was caught off guard by Typhoon Helen. We decided to move the date of the intramurals next week so everyone can better prepare for the event, “ said Dean Melba Ano of the Student Affairs Office.
Considered as the highlight events of the intramurals, the Mr. & Ms. Intrams pageant and the Cheerdance Competition will be on the morning and afternoon of August 25 respectively. Meanwhile, ball games and other allied sports are rescheduled on August 23-24 and 28.
“Ball games will be played on different dates because students will just go home if we will schedule it on 25” added Dean Ano.
Participants in the cheerdance competition were most affected by the postponement. Although many were delighted by the news, some teams expressed their frustration.
“The change in the schedule was alright for our team. it actually gave us more time to practice and memorize our routine in the cheerdance,” says Roanne Ducusin from the College of Nursing.
On the other hand, Jennifer Gequillo of the College of Medical Laboratory Science pep squad stated, “Sayang yung time. Kailangan na naming magpraktis, mapapagod lang kami.”
