Buwan ng Wika 2016


Grade 11 Students leading the Philippine National Anthem

Last August 26, 2016, Tabernacle of Faith Christian Academy celebrated Buwan ng Wika with the theme: “Filipino: Wika ng Karunungan.” The program started on time (9am), with Ms. Myara Poliarco leading the Invocation which was proceeded by the singing of the Philippine National Anthem.

Selected TFCA teachers in their Filipino costumes opened up the program with a folk-dance number much to the delight of the audience.

After the dance number, the principal, Mr. Andrew Tan welcomed the parents and guests and gave his opening remarks.

The preschool students charmed the audience with their “Katutubong Sayaw” to the tune of “Paru-parong Bukid” and “Itik-Itik,” each of them of course dressed in their Filipino-costumes.
