The Philippine Embassy in the United Kingdom welcomed about 100 guests as it held a reception for Filipino students in the UK on 03 December 2021 at Sentro Rizal London.
The annual reception for students is the Embassy’s way of bringing together Filipino students in the UK and as an opportunity for them to meet and network with Embassy personnel and with one another.
In Ambassador Antonio M. Lagdameo’s welcome remarks, he looked back on the many milestones that the Philippines marked in 2021 and expressed optimism for the Philippine economy’s recovery from the pandemic. He urged the students to keep in touch with the Embassy and looked forward to better circumstances in 2022 to allow the Embassy to meet Filipino students in the UK more often.
London-based Lahing Kayumanggi Dance Company provided entertainment, with their rendition of various Filipino folk dances.
The Philippine Embassy in the United Kingdom commemorated the martyrdom of Dr. Jose P. Rizal in simple ceremonies on 29 December 2021.
Together with the officers and staff of the Embassy, Chargé d’Affaires Rhenita B, Rodriguez led the floral offering by the bust of Dr. Rizal at Sentro Rizal London in honor of the memory of the Philippine National Hero.
