Academic & Cultural Program

" A  poeple without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots."

- Marcus Garvey, Publisher, Activist, Journalist -

"DISCOVER PHILIPPINES"

"DISCOVER PHILIPPINES" is an apt slogan for our cultural and academic program aimed at the youth who were born here from Filipino parents and for non-Filipino spouses as well. The program aims to create awareness of  the Filipino heritage and how it shaped the Filipino values and traditions. It also aims to make them feel proud of the Philippines with the many facets that are unique of  our country. Our diverse ethnicity derived from the Malays, Muslims, Hindus, Chinese, Spaniards, and Americans is what makes us unique. Not only would that be worth discovering but it would also be astonishing to discover the natural resources found in the Philippines, from the pristine beaches all over the country, the underground caves, the hundred islands with their tropical beaches, regional delicacies and tropical fruits, perfect coned volcano and the non-parity  jeepneys. Immersion is the best way of discovering the country where smiles are as abundant as the sunlight and where every tourist is pampered with Filipino hospitality.     

 

Discover Philippines now!

 


 

These are just some of our activities and programs that we have held to whet one’s appetite:

  • Pista Sa Nayon - a cultural festival depicting Filipino tradition of celebrating fiestas
