STAGING OF THE MUSICALE “HINILAWOD”
The Creative Futures, Inc., will present the musicale Hinilawod at the Tanghalang Nicanor Abelardo, main theatre of the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) on September 3 and 4, 2011 at 3 pm and 8 pm.
Hinilawod means “tales from the Halawod River.” It is one of the country’s literary treasures that was recorded in the 1950s by Dr. F. Landa Jocano, a noted Filipino anthropologist who was chanted by the mountain singers of Panay. He has written three (3) books on this epic.
This musicale tells of the adventures of the central characters like Data Paubari, the goddess Alunsina, their three (3) sons, who were known as a people with the soul of noble warriors, true strength, fearless spirit and a heart ablaze for their race.
Hinilawod is not just a literary piece but also a source of information about culture, religion and rituals of the ancient people of Sulod showing that ancient Filipinos believed in the “sacredness” of family honor, personal courage and dignity.
This folktale was first staged as a dance performance in Iloilo City in 1983. Other notable stagings followed at the World Expo in Spain in 1994, and during the 3rd ASEAN Dance Festival in Manila. In 1995, it was presented at the International Festival for Experimental Theater in Cairo, Egypt, Paris, Madrid, Frankfurt and Rome. In 1998, this epic was presented in the United States of America (USA), Canada and Paris.
In 2010, the Hinilawod was staged as a musicale at the Luce Auditorium of Silliman University in Dumaguete City. More performances followed during that year.
Invited to watch the musicale are elementary pupils and secondary school students from both public and private schools nationwide as well as musicale enthusiasts.

RESOLUTION COMMENDING JOHN GABRIEL PELIAS FOR MERITORIOUS ACADEMIC RECORD AND FOR SERVING AS INSPIRATION TO THE FILIPINO YOUTH
The National Youth Commission (NYC) has adopted the Resolution No. 46, s. 2011 entitled, Resolution Commending John Gabriel Pelias for Meritorious Academic Record and for Serving as Inspiration to the Filipino Youth on April 25, 2011.
Mr. John Gabriel Pelias, a 2011 Summa Cum Laude Graduate of Bachelor of Science (BS) in Mathematics from the University of the Philippines (UP), got a general weighted average (GWA) of 1.016. Aside from graduating with highest Latin honors, Mr. Pelias has been granted the best thesis award, the outstanding BS Math Student award, and the Award of Excellence from the College of Science.
Mr. Pelias at a young age of 19 garnered the second highest GWA in the history of UP breaking a 63-year post-World War II record. He finished his high school and college education through scholarship grants and would even use his scholarship money to fend for his family and walk his way to school to save up on costs. He has proven that with dedication, focus and determination, poverty is not a hindrance to pursuing an education and achieving academic excellence.
Mr. Pelias has signified his intention of staying in the country and giving back to the people who subsidized his education by pursuing a teaching career in the Institute of Mathematics. In his valedictory address, he encouraged his fellow “Iskolars ng Bayan” to serve the Filipino people, saying: “The least we can do in return to this country’s taxpayers who paid a huge part of the UP education is to dedicate even just some time of our lives in the service of the Filipino people.”
Mr. Pelias made history with his meritorious academic record at UP. He serves as a sterling example and role model to the Filipino youth, truly worthy of emulation.
In this connection, the Department of Education (DepEd) congratulates and commends Mr. John Gabriel Pelias for his academic excellence award and appreciates his dedication to his country and by pursuing a teaching career in the field of Mathematics.
