LIGAO CITY—The Department of Education (DepEd) recorded 1,014,590 students enrolled as of Thursday, August 4, in the Bicol region as the country prepares for the resumption of in-person classes after two years of distance learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Mayflor Marie Jumamil, DepEd Bicol information officer, said the data came from the quick count at 8 a.m. Thursday of enrollees for school year 2022-2023.


Camarines Sur province is leading with 233,032 students already enrolled, followed by Masbate with 145,278. Albay has 136,634, and Sorsogon has 132,298.


Camarines Norte has 92,642 students enrolled and Catanduanes, 56,970.
