TCAPS Celebrates “Buwan ng Wikang Pambansa 2012”


Another National Language Month celebration transpired as we observed the 75th year of the declaration of Tagalog as our basic language of communication. It was in 1937 when Executive Order No. 134  was approved calling for the development of a national language based in Tagalog. In 1987 however, the Constitution was revised stating that the national language of the Philippines be Filipino.

This August, The Children’s Ark Preparatory School  joined the entire nation in commemorating “Buwan ng Wikang Pambansa” with a series of activities according to each week’s theme: August 1-7 highlights the 75th year of Filipino in education and its use in official communication; August 8-14, 2012, Filipino and other dialects in the context of Kindergarten-to-12 and Mother Tongue Based Education; August 15-21, 2012, centers on the national anthem “Lupang Hinirang” and “Panatang Makabayan.”; August 23-28, 2012, celebrates Filipino as a universal language that promotes a stable society; and August 29-31, 2012 capping the celebration with school activities consistent with the President’s “Tuwid na Daan”  battle cry.

TCAPS kids sporting the Philippine traditional fashion, embroidered barong Tagalog for the boys and the baro at saya for the girls, in keeping with the theme for this important occasion.

  1. ang saya talaga ng programs natin with the help of our teachers it was been better!!

  2. CONGRATULATIONS T.C.A.P.S. for a successful Linggo Ng Wika 2012..!!! Parati nating tandaan ang sinabi ng ating Pambansang Bayani na si Dr. Jose Rizal.. “Ang hindi marunong magmahal sa sariling wika ay higit pa sa mabaho at malansang isda..” Kaya ating mahalin ang ating wika, kahit saan man kayo mapunta. Wag maging mayabang at kalimutan kung saan ka nag-simula. Sapagka’t ang taong hindi marunong tumingin sa kanyang pinanggalingan ay hindi makakarating sa kanyang pupuntahan… Mabuhay kayong lahat..!!!
