Wikaserye, Photo Essay Culminate GCA’s Buwan Ng Wika 2020 Celebration Winners Announced

Despite the threats of the COVID-19 pandemic, there’s no denying that it collectively brought us together as Filipinos with one language and as a community with one purpose. 

Great Christian Academy, for one, celebrated last year’s Buwan Ng Wika and brought the community together through various online activities that center around the national theme provided by the Komisyon ng Wikang Filipino (KWF): “Wika ng Kasaysayan, Kasaysayan ng Wika: Ang mga Katutubong Wika sa Maka-Filipinong Bayanihan Kontra Pandemya”.

Students, teachers, and parents at GCA joined forces to support the propagation of Filipino and other ethnic languages as the most effective medium for collecting and sharing crucial information amid the pandemic. Two school-wide events that made this mission successful are the Wikaserye and Photo Essay Facebook contests, so let us congratulate all the participants and winners of these events. 

For Wikaserye, GCA invited students to participate in a Facebook contest featuring unusual Tagalog words. Students were tasked to use the featured word in a sentence and place their answers in the comment section. The answers with the best usage belong to the following students: 

  1. Rence Alcala
  2. Angel Ann Dominisa
  3. Belle Ashley

For the Photo Essay contest, students were tasked to submit a photo of themselves wearing any national costume and back it up with a two-paragraph essay that centers around this year’s theme. The top three participants who met the judges’ and audience’s expectations in terms of creativity, presentation, and relevance to the theme are the following:

  1. Tiffany Mullasgo
  2. Rence Alcala
  3. Angel Ann Dominisa

Congratulations to all the winners! May your creativity and wisdom inspire more Filipino students to use our national language as a useful weapon against the pandemic and other challenges in life.
