The New Pledge of Allegiance to the Philippine Flag – “Panatang Makabayan”

 - by admin

Official Filipino language version
Ako ay Pilipino
Buong katapatang nanunumpa
Sa watawat ng Pilipinas
At sa bansang kanyang sinasagisag
Na may dangal, katarungan at kalayaan
Na pinakikilos ng sambayanang
Maka-Diyos, makatao,
Makakalikasan at
Makabansa.

Unofficial English language translation
I am a Filipino
I pledge my allegiance
To the flag of the Philippines
And to the country it represents
With honor, justice and freedom
Put in motion by one nation
For God, humanity,
Nature and
Country.

* this is the new version that was handed to me during my son’s graduation practice last February. All the while this version was what we were using. I’m not really sure why they have to keep revising the pledge.  It can be confusing. Methinks my generation’s version is still the best. But that’s my biased opinion. 🙂

This was the version that we used last school year which was supposedly the “revised” version already:

Iniibig ko ang Pilipinas,
Aking lupang sinilangan,
Tahanan ng aking lahi,
Kinukupkop ako at tinutulungan
Maging malakas, masipag at marangal.
Dahil mahal ko ang Pilipinas,
Diringgin ko ang payo
Ng aking magulang,
Susundin ko ang tuntunin ng paaralan,
Tutuparin ko ang tungkulin
Ng mamamayang makabayan:
Naglilingkod, nag-aaral at nagdarasal
Ng buong katapatan
Iaalay ko ang aking buhay,
Pangarap, pagsisikap
Sa bansang Pilipinas

Panatang Makabayan ng Pilipinas: the old (original) version that we used in our generation

Iniibig ko ang Pilipinas.
Ito ang aking lupang sinilangan.
Ito ang tahanan ng aking lahi.
Ako’y kanyang kinukupkop at tinutulungan,
Upang maging malakas, maligaya at kapakipakinabang.

Bilang ganti ay diringgin ko ang payo ng aking mga magulang.
Susundin ko ang mga tuntunin ng aking paaralan.
Tutuparin ko ang tungkulin ng isang mamamayang makabayan at masunurin sa batas.

Paglilingkuran ko ang aking bayan nang walang pag-iimbot at nang buong katapatan.
Sisikapin kong maging isang tunay na Pilipino,
sa isip, sa salita at sa gawa.

Getting everything ready for this school year

 - by admin

While we might not need a handful of things to prepare or loads of books to buy, we still need to buy some stuff that have been outgrown from the previous school year. Like my son’s uniform, for instance. Even though we are homeschooling and we actually are not required to wear uniforms, my husband and I decided that it is for the better that our son uses school uniform. This will help set his mind when it is school time and when it is not.

Pledge to the Christian Flag and the Bible

 - by admin

After reciting the pledge of allegiance to the Philippine flag, my son will then procede to recite the pledge to the Christian flag and to the Bible. A basic homeschool routine in the School of Tomorrow’s Preschool with Ace and Christ curriculum.  It took my son just a few days to memorize the words, but more than the words, I also make sure that he understands what the pledges mean. 

Pledge to the Bible

I pledge allegiance to the Bible, God’s Holy Word.

I will make it a lamp unto my feet 

and a light unti my ath.

I will hide its words in my heart

that I might not sin against God.

PANATANG MAKABAYAN
Iniibig ko ang Pilipinas, aking lupang sinilangan
