Buwan na Wika 2017
This year's theme, "Filipino: Wikang Mapagbago" reminds us on the importance of our language which paves the way for a deeper understanding of our identity as Filipinos and increase our drive for a better change for the Philippines.
As national hero Dr. Jose Rizal once emphasized the importance of national language, "Ang hindi magmahal sa sariling wika ay higit pa ang amoy sa mabahong isda; kaya ating pagyamaning kusa, gaya ng inang sa atin ay nagpala."
Trinitarians were once again challenged to celebrate their unique identities as Filipinos through various activities.
The month-long celebration was divided into different parts. The Supreme Trinitarian Council spearheaded the bugtung-bugtungan activity during the flag ceremony.
The culminating activities of the preschool, elementary and high school departments were celebrated during the last week of August.
The preschool department had their literary musical show featuring vocal solo contests and Filipino dances.
The elementary and high school departments' held their literary musical show. Students showcased their talents in dancing, singing, pagtutula, bandang etniko, and the delivery of their hugot lines.
One of the best features of the litmus was the "Pagalingan sa Kasuotang Pilipino", the chance of the Trinitarians to wear their best Filipino costumes.
Another day of the National Language Week was dedicated to the Palarong-Pambansa. On this day, students grouped themselves together and competed in games traditionally played by children in the Philippines.
Like the Filipino language, these traditional games represent a culture that the Filipinos call their own.
