The 2020 DepEd thrust of prioritizing “last mile” schools has found its meaning in the context of this year’s Division Secondary Schools Press Conference held at Bato Rural Development High School last Aug. 26-28.

With the purpose of discussing and writing about timely and relevant issues, the said event sought to bring awareness on issues that are deemed impactful to education and the community, particularly in the Geographically Isolated and Disadvantaged Areas (GIDA).

The annual event which this year centered on the theme “Bridging Mile Gaps in Education through Campus Journalism” gathered together 917 participants from 43 public and private secondary schools in the province with the keynote Speaker Peter C. Cua represented by Ma’am Agnes Solero.

The said event featured eight individual events on News Writing, Editorial Writing, Feature Writing, Science & Health Writing, Sports Writing, Copyreading & Headline Writing, Editorial Cartooning, and Photojournalism.

Group contests on Collaborative Desktop Publishing and Radio Scriptwriting & Broadcasting were also participated in. The first-ever competition in Online Desktop Publishing happened this year as San Andres Vocational School (SAVS) challenged Catanduanes National High School.

One highlight, however, was the parallel sessions on Column Writing and Poetry Writing which were introduced during the conduct of the National Training on Campus Journalism in December 2017.

National winner on Campus Journalism Ricky V. Tid discussed on Column Writing, while the local literary group SURTE introduced Poetry Writing. Both events had a workshop where top 5 winners were selected in English and Filipino category. Bikol language was used as the medium in Poetry writing.

Column Writing was already included in the 2019 National Schools Press Conference in Lingayen, Pangasinan, but only as a demo contest. The inclusion of Poetry Writing has yet to be officially confirmed by the NSPC Technical Working Group.

The top three winners in the eight individual contests, while the first placers in the three group events will represent the Division of Catanduanes in the Regional Schools Press Conference (RSPC) in Legazpi, Albay on  November 5-7, 2019.

The top five performing schools have yet to be announced on Sept. 20, 2019 after the results of the School Paper Contest have been included in the overall pointing scheme of the said event.

Meanwhile, the Division is gearing up for a series of cliniquing for the RSPC Qualifiers to ensure victory in the regional tilt. This is tentatively set every Friday and Saturday starting September 27. It will culminate with a five-day live-in training in October.

The Catanduanes Delegation is the 4th Runner- Up in last year’s RSPC besting all other nine divisions in the region. It is overall champion in the School Paper Contest (Secondary Level).
