Students of the Lumad Bakwit School holds Graduation
Students from the Lumad Bakwit School held their Graduation and Recognition Ceremonies last March 29, 2019 at the Integrated School of the University of the Philippines in Diliman. Institutions, schools foundations, and individuals who supported the Bakwit School in Manila stood as parents of the graduating students.
For the Benedictine communities which adopted the Bakwit School this school year, Sr. Theodora Bilocura, OSB and Ms. Becky P. Marquez, each stood as parents for the Lumad students. The “parents” went up on stage with the students and were the ones who placed their medals and the sablay on the students. After graduation, most of the students will be going back to Mindanao to be reconciled with their families.
