This is not just an event… This is HISTORY!


After more than 50 years of existence and many years of planning, finally the school held its first ever GRAND ALUMNI HOMECOMING last December 27 at the school covered court.

More than three hundreds of exciting alumni, former principals and teachers attended   the celebration. The event started with a foot parade, and then a     simple program and celebration followed. 

The reunion was anchored on the tagline “Balik Tanaw, Balik Paaralan, Kita-kits sa Tenejero E.S” conceived by the grand reunion working committee.

It seems like yesterday for the alumni as they spent that special day by reminiscing and sharing happy memories, experiences and stories, singing and dancing and lots of eating. Selfies and photo taking were never missed. The         excitement was felt among the alumni as they met their batch mates and former classmates.

The merriment continued with sharing of success stories from different      representatives of each batch.  This is a proof that TES produces professionals who can excel and make a difference in their chosen fields.

Graduates also share their treasures as some of them donated some amount for school physical improvement.

Success always begins with one single step. With this first initiative, the school is now looking forward for the second TES Grand Reunion on December 2017. Preparations will be easier now as TES Alumni Officers headed by their president, Mr. Frederico Espuelas, were elected.

Of course, all the success of the first TES Grand Alumni Homecoming was achieved because of the collaboration and endless support of our dear principal Mrs. Agnes O. Magdalera, very supportive and accommodating GPTA Officers, hardworking and talented faculty member, and school utility workers.

The True Spirit of Bayanihan: Making TES an Eco-Friendly School By: Lorenz Joy Camacho

posted Feb 19, 2016, 6:53 AM by Edeliza Manalaysay

    If everyone helps to hold up the sky, then one person does not become tired.

    This quote from The Black Book of Proverbs is what the school stakeholders lived by as they unite to make the campus eco-friendly.

    Realizing the importance of having a safe environment, teachers, parents and pupils lend their helping hands in making garden decorations from recyclable materials such as old tires, plastic bottles, used CDs, tin cans, bottle caps and etc.

    This school project encouraged participation of parents and community members to transform the school to an environment-friendly area, where school children can have fun while learning and at the same time enjoy the clean and safe school surrounding.

    It is true that cooperation can make work a lot easier. Having this kind of project sparked the ‘bayanihan’ spirit of the stakeholders. It is very evident that they really exerted effort and did as much as they can to help the environment and beautify the school.
