    it is a loan word from Espaniol. The Tagalog for Hawla is "Kulungan".

    I think it is possible that hawla came from Spanish, as AULA is classroom in Spanish.

    The Tagalog word hawla meaning cage is most likely a loanword with orthographic adaptations from the Spanish word jaula, also meaning ​cage.
