The month of August has just concluded which means that the Philippine Celebration for the "Buwan ng Wika" will also be over. Part of the commemorative celebration are the different speech contests every school is conducting including Macky's. The International Christian School of Davao celebrated the "Buwan ng Wika" for the elementary grade last August 31,2011.
The event's contests were participated by all elementary levels from 1st grade to 6th grade. Macky represented the 5th grade in the Talumpati (Speech) Competition. Upon hearing that he will be joining the contest, I was so excited to attend to show him my support but he don't want me to be there because he said that he will be ashamed if he will not win. So I just didn't push it. But look what he has got!

Macky was declared champion in the Talumpati Competition. It was somehow unbelievable since we couldn't catch him studying or memorizing his piece. I even told him to perform in front of the family so we can critique but he didn't took me seriously. He also has a bonus news for us because his teacher told him that he is the Top 6 of the class for the first grading of the this year.
We were so happy with the news and I immediately informed my brother that his son is really doing well at school. I let Macky read his father's reply through SMS. He said that he is so happy and proud of Macky. He really showed extra effort to let his father feel that all his hard work was valued. His Tito Brendan will be treating him to Jolibee this coming payday as a reward for his efforts.
Again Lang, Congratulations! We are so proud of you and very happy for your achievements. Keep it up!
