Today in History: National Independence Day

Today we are celebrating the 122nd Philippine Independence Day in commemoration of the day Emilio Aguinaldo declared Philippine independence in Kawit, Cavite. On June 12, 1898 the Philippine flag was raised in public for the first time. Emilio Aguinaldo then became the first president of the country. This year’s theme is “Kalayaan 2020: Tungo sa Bansang Malaya, Nagbabayanihan, at Ligtas”.

We, at Saint Francis of Assisi College and Saint Anthony School wish everyone a safe and healthy celebration. May we all achieve freedom from Covid-19!
