QUEZON CITY, February 22 – The National Capital Region cupped the championship in the Festival of Talents (NFOT) held in Dagupan City on January 28 to February 1, 2019.

With the theme “Celebrating Diversity through the Performance of Talents and Skills for Sustainable Inclusive Education,” the NCR participants bested other regions as they showcased their best talents and skills through exhibitions of products, services, and performances in different events as evidence of their learning in various areas.

The NFOT events included the Technolympics for Technical-Vocational-Livelihood Education, Information and Communications Technology (ICT), and Entrepreneurship; Sining Tanghalan, Nationwide Song Writing and Choral Group, National Pambansang Tagisan ng Talento sa Filipino; and Special Program in the Foreign Language (Spanish, Mandarin, Japanese, French, Arabic, Braille and sign languages). For the first time learners with disabilities, out-of-school youth and Muslims were able to showcase their talents.

OIC RD Wilfredo E. Cabral, OIC ARD Tolentino G. Aquino, representing the Region and Schools Division Offices, extended their all-out support to the event.
