PHLC: Linggo ng Wika
Today is "Linggo ng Wika" celebration for all students in Perpetual Help Learning Center and definitely a must see event. This is the first time that all classes in their school should present and make a booth that represent a region which is pre-assigned per class. In Bembem's class Grade 1 section Blue, they showcased all popular food representing Region 3 (Central Luzon) and to my surprise all parents specially those SAHM (stay at home mom) are very much involved in this event. Although there are contribution for their baro't saya costume some parents volunteer to bring some food delicacies like palabok, biko, puto, chicharon, pulvoron and other finger foods. To complete the booth, they decorate it with some palayok, dayami and other materials that makes it Filipiniana style. See picture above.
The difference of this event from the past are all students participated in the celebration by presenting a group dance or group recitation of a poem (sabayang pagbigkas) wherein all students are in their own costume related to what region they are representing for Bembem's class they are representing Region 3 Central Luzon. And to make it excited the school awarded those group who have their best performance, best in booth, most behave group (i think this award helps a lot to make the event very organized without children loittering around).
And because of an organized presentation of Bembem's group they got the Best in Performance award!!!! I think we should congratulate also those mommy/daddy/tito/tita/grandma that are very active in participating in this successful event. And I'm also thankful (as in very thankful) that at once the school make this a non boring and very interactive activity for all not only for adults but also for kids. For more pictures click here
