Tag of being a Pilipino is also the Filipino language.
So it is said that it must foster and perpetuate.
This was the message of Boracay National High School (BNHS) Principal II, Jose Niro Nillasca to both teachers and students in conjunction with the celebration of Annual “Buwan ng Wika” in the country.
According to Nillasca, the Filipino language depends on how it was preserved while becoming open in using other languages as well as in terms of globalization.
Meanwhile, BNHS has lineup several activities to celebrate the Buwan ng Wika or the National Language Month this August 1-31.
With the theme, “Filipino: Wika ng Pagkakaisa” (Filipino: Language of Unity), the celebration will feature linguistic and cultural activities all over the country.
The celebration is pursuant to Proclamation 1041, signed by former President Fidel Ramos, which declares the annual national celebration of the National Language Month every August. Additionally, former President Manuel Quezon, considered the Father of the National Language, was born on August 19, 1878.
