The Annual “Buwan ng Wika” Celebration PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, September 25 2008 13:29
In the school calendar of the DepEd, August is dedicated to the “Buwan ng Wika” Celebration. This is an opportunity to integrate Filipino culture appreciation, especially the Filipino language, in the classroom activities throughout the month of August. With much enthusiasm and dedication the RCP teachers and staff made a plan so as to make this first ever celebration of “Buwan ng Wika” festive and memorable. Thus, the theme “Kulturang Atin, Ating Pagyamanin” was conceived to align all the various activities set for the month. The “Buwan ng Wika” month was divided in three different moments: the Campaign Drive per class level, the Culture Appreciation and the Culminating Activity. Students enthusiastically grabbed the opportunity to learn Filipino poems, songs, prayers and dances. August 22, 2008, the much awaited date for the Culminating Activity has finally come! Parents, guardians, friends and relatives came along to witness the emerging talents of our RCP Pioneers dressed appropriately for the occasion. As we see the excitement glowing from the faces of each pupil we also witnessed the joyful awe of those who came to participate in the celebration. Each number presented was immortalized by the flash of digicams brought along by the parents and guardians. The interpretation of the “Isang Pipit” dance by the Nursery and Kinder added to the already overflowing joy felt by all. Artwork competition on Filipino values was marked by the awarding of certificates given by Fr. Eric Raveza III, RCJ assisted by the RCP Principal. Five pupils were awarded “Natatanging Sining”. Prior to the culminating festivities was the launching of “Living of  Filipino Cultural Values”. Pupils were observed by their advisers during the whole month on how each one would creatively and actively live a Filipino value. Certificates were given to each pupil as recognition to their effort of having lived out the Filipino values. A soulful choral rendition of the song “Tayo’y Magkaibigan” truly captured the spirit of the joyful event lived not only by the pupils themselves, but by everyone who came to be part of the celebration. A fraternal spirit! A timely message that our RCP Pioneers brought through their song and that it may hopefully resound in the “ears” of our wounded society.
