In line with the celebration of Buwan ng Wikang Pambansa, Stonyhurst Southville International School will launch TULA-la Festival activities on Monday, August 1, with the theme “Filipino, Wika ng Karunungan”. TULA-la is an event organized by the Filipino Subject Area to promote awareness and appreciation of the Filipino language and culture. It is also a great opportunity for students to creatively express themselves using the Filipino language. Amazing and engaging activities are the following:


Sayawit. Students from ECED to high school with the participation of the members of Glee and Dance club will kick-off the festival on August 22 through folk songs and ethnic dance presentation.

Haiku & Tanaga Writing. Students will write a poem (haiku or tanaga) which will be posted on assigned area/freedom wall. The best poem from each class will be chosen as the winner. Students’ written output will represent their pledge to continuously uphold highest pride of the Filipino language and culture. This activity will be done during Filipino class.

Hugot Line of the Day. Three images will be featured every day. Students are encouraged to write “hugot” lines in relation to the featured images. This activity will test students’ ability to use Filipino words creatively. This activity will start on August 22 to August 26.

Filipino Alphabet Flash Card - Making & Spelling Bee. ECED students will demonstrate creativity and awareness of the Filipino alphabet through flash card-making. Their outputs will be posted at the lobby for everyone’s viewing. Likewise, Grades 1 and 2 students will exhibit their exceptional skills in spelling out basic Filipino words. This spelling contest will take place on August 26. Eliminations per class will be done to identify the participants.

Masining na Pagkukwento (GS) at Pagbigkas ng Deklamasyon (HS). Students from Grades 3 to 11 will select a short story / declamation piece in Filipino that they wish to recite during their Filipino class. Using a rubric, the Filipino teacher will assess students’ performance. The student who will get the highest score will be the representative of the class in the final round which will be held on August 23 for High school and August 25 for Grade school.
