Philippines : DepEd hails Filipino heroism with mural exhibit.

In commemoration of the Department of Educations (DepEd) 121st founding anniversary, the Philippine Independence Day, and Jose Rizals birth anniversary, DepEd unveiled the exhibit Bayani, sa Lupain ng Gintot Bulaklak in the Bulwagan ng Karunungan on June 24. DepEd Secretary Leonor Magtolis Briones underscored in her message that heroes can come from all walks of life: Una, kailangan na pag-aralan natin muli kung ano ang ating konsepto ng isang hero dahil lahat ng Pilipino ay may pagkakataong maging hero. Pangalawa, we can be living heroes: serving our country, serving our people, taking risks its not the glory, its not the money, its not wealth.

Through the Office of the Undersecretary for Administration (OUA) and the Youth Formation Division (YFD), and in cooperation with Kaakbay ng Guro Research, the exhibit showcases an 818-foot mural of Filipino heroes by Baguio-born artist Angelo Aurelio, and portraits and biosketches of national heroes considered as the Founding Fathers of the Filipino Nation. Aurelio, who is also a theater actor and director, created the mural in 47 days. Originally titled The Bayani Matrix Project, the mural was first displayed for three days at the Baguio Museum on June 12. The artwork will be a staple in the OUA after the exhibit in Bulwagan closes on July 5.

Undersecretary for Administration Alain Del Pascua, Undersecretary for Finance Annalyn Sevilla, Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs (PAS) and Alternative Learning System (ALS) Program and Task Force G.H. Ambat, OIC-Assistant Secretary for Curriculum and Instruction Alma Ruby Torio, Assistant Secretary for Procurement and Administration Salvador Malana III also joined DepEd CO and regional officials, personnel, learners, and teachers in the event.

In her final message, the Education chief challenged all the regional directors to do a research on heroes in their respective regions: When we put up exhibit of national heroes, dapat may accompanied exhibit ng regional heroes. The Secretary concluded her message with an acknowledgement of the Filipino peoples own heroism: Ang ating bansa ay binubuo ng ilang milyong Pilipino sa ibat ibang rehiyon na nagbuwis ng kanilang buhay, na nagsisilbi, na nagtitiis para sa ating bayan, at para sa ating kinabukasan.
