August was the Buwan ng Wikang Pambansa (National Language Month) and it is celebrated through various activities in schools throughout the country. Buwan ng Wikang Pambansa is an effort to promote love and pride for the national language and is sponsored by the Department of Education. The 2010 theme for Buwan ng Wikang Pambansa was “Sa Pangangalaga sa Wika at Kalikasan, Wagas na Pagmamahal Talagang Kailangan”.
During the month-long activities, Artacho Elementary School’s Sabayang Pagbigkas Group garnered third place honor during the Buwan ng Wika Celebration at the municipal level. The Sabayang Pagbigkas is a group oration competition where these talented young students from Artacho competed against 25 schools.
