Did you know if what was the historical event that exactly happened why we commemorate August 31 as the National Heroes’ Day?
It was in late August 1896 when the Katipuneros led by Andres Bonifacio gathered in Caloocan and launched their revolt. This event was now known as “Cry of Balintawak” or “Cry of Pugad Lawin”. It was the beginning of the Philippine Revolution against the Spaniards.
As we remember our National Heroes of the past, Jose Maria College also pays TRIBUTE to our unsung heroes amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. Our grand SALUTE!
