Top performing Tangadan Elem School in Abra gets Silver Marker

San Quintin, Abra

San Quintin, Abra

By Maria Teresa B. Benas

SAN QUINTIN, Abra, Aug. 7 (PIA) — The Tangadan Elementary School (TES) of San Quintin emerged as top performing public school in the province of Abra.

The school, which is the first barangay as one enters Abra from Ilocos Sur, displays its Silver Marker from the Department of Education for its Level II Accreditation for Public Elementary Schools (APES) for the school year 2013-2014.

The accreditation serves as an inspiration to all residents.

The Silver Marker is signed by Education Secretary Bro. Armin Luistro and top officials of DepEd-Cordillera and the Schools Division of Abra.

According to Dr. Paulina Sawadan of the DepEd-Cordillera Region, the Tangadan Elementary School is the only accredited public elementary school in the entire province of Abra.

APES is given to public elementary schools that have excelled in all aspects of education and in the operation and management of a school that foster a continuing culture of excellence.

“Being awarded the APES is not easy as it requires hard work and dedication,” Dr. Teresita J. Garcia, TES school head, said as she shared how difficult it was for TES to comply with the criteria and conditions of the award.

Garcia explained that a school has to be consistent in its excellent performance in all aspects of education which include academic excellence of pupils as reflected in the result of the National Achievement Test and the low rate or absence of school dropouts; the capability of its faculty; improved facilities and community participation and support. And every performance has to be documented and monitored.

To improve the capability of its faculty, Garcia said teachers had to attend graduate school and specialize trainings through their own pocket.

Garcia also expressed appreciation and gratitude to Mayor Amador B. Diaz for his all-out support in providing all the needed school facilities as well as the cooperation of the people in the community especially the Parents-Teachers Association, who are always ready and available to help in the upkeep of the school facilities.

While the TES has complete facilities now such as comfort room inside and outside of the classrooms, library, laboratory, clinic pre-school classrooms, music room and practical arts, Garcia said, they have to exert more efforts and sacrifice to cope with the standards set by the APES in terms of improved facilities as they vie for Level III accreditation or a Gold Marker.

The TES got its APES Level or Bronze Award in 2009. (JDP/MTBB-PIA CAR,Abra)

  1. The school, which is the first barangay as one enters Abra from Ilocos Sur, displays its Silver Marker from the Department of Education for its Level II Accreditation for Public Elementary Schools (APES) for the school year 2013-2014. ——Correction please. ” Tangadan where in the school is located is the first barangay of San Quitin if you are coming from Ilocos Sur.” This is the right way of arranging your words to identify the location, direction, etc of the school and the barangay MS. MARIA TERESA B. BENAS. Kainis naging writer pa. sorry po dami pa rin namang makakabasa dito- ang gulo.

      • Kaya nga. Ang dami pang mali sa mga pinagsasabi niya sa news ni MS. MARIA TEREAA B. BANAS. I don’t have time and patience to check all of them. Ang lakas ng loob maging writer. Abra talaga basta puede.. puede na. lol!

        • Focus on achievement rather than criticism dam shit (You just one of those atypical Filipino who aren’t happy if others do something for their community) Its obvious that English is her third language. Philippines is not a native English speaking country. So, maybe you should educate us to communicate like you do.

        • Mr. Q please find my reply to your message below. Thank you po.

      • Dr. Benas is an honorable public person with a lot of achievements. How in this word that she is being criticized with that perceived error. I see no wrong with the statement, “First barangay as one enters Abra” ” from Ilocos sur” It is wrong when you did not mentioned “Ilocos Sur”. otherwise it might be somewhere in Malibcong or one from Abra Ilocos Norte road. People used to know more of Abra in its totality, like buses have their caratula “Abra”, not “Bangued”. The only thing I know why others are sour grapping is that “San Quintin” was not mentioned. That was understandable. Well, codus to Tangadan Elementary School for a brilliant achievement. I was wondering why others from the cabisera were not able to do such feat.

          Posted by Boss | August 14, 2013, 6:43 pm
        • In the first place, Tangadan, San Quintin was already mentioned. To mentioned it twice is no longer needed. It is of the writers preference if she will make another description of the place, which is the “first Barangay as one enters Abra from Ilocos Sur”. Bihasang manunulat si Ms. Benas if you don’t know.

        • I agree with your analysis or explanation Ms. Naeling for it seems that you too is a member of the journalistic world.
          When you mentioned “it is the writer’s preference……….” that’s itin for who we are to question the “metes and bounds” of journalism. Besides, she has an Editor that supposed to be in the hot seat if ever Ms. Benas made an inadvertent mistake, but obviously she has not. And like you said, it’s writer’s preference…..therefor, I’m urging everybody to stop arguing further with this journalists/writers (it’s their field of expertise and we are just unqualified critics) but to pour out instead our collective voice or admiration of what this barangay school and/or town had just achieved.
          CONGRATULATIONS ……pupils, parents, teachers, and barangay/local officials for without your collective effort and hardships, far from the truth that you have had nailed it.
          How I wish my humble town would be the next where its KTL forum might play a big role in achieving it. Go KTL…you can change our beloved town to be the best among the best. You got my trust and confidence that you are indeed the true pillars of our town based of what I’ve read from the different ideas/food for thoughts that you have posted.

        • This is for Q.

          I am not against Ms. Maria Teresa B. Benas or to any accomplishment of any body or province specially accomplishment of Abra. Abra is our Province. English being a second or third language in Abra or in Philippines, as you have specified on your message, is not an excuse for any body to commit grammar error in news reporting. This is a public information. All shall read your news. My concern are the youths. What shall they think of this Q? They shall consider that making grammar errors is acceptable in news reporting? Alright, I agree for a while, it is acceptable in the Philippines but what about if these youths wish to work abroad specially in West. Here they shall be subjected to big change on the way they write and communicate in English. This is my point Q. As early as now, we have to practice and promote good English to our kids. I am not a typical Pilipino Mr. Q, I want change for among Pilipinos and I am ready to fight what is best for Pilipinos that is why I am here in this site protecting what I believe right to do things better and nnot just settle to less. Apay no maaramid mo ti namaymayat Mr. Q saan mo kadi a kayat? Just a simple question Mr. Q. Thank you po.

        • This is for Naeling.

          I am not questioning the achievements or background of Ms. Maria Teresita B. Benas. Every body commits mistakes and the subject here that I am concern with is not Ms. Maria Teresita B. Benas. This is news reporting. They got responsible personnel to check the rightness and structure of their materials before they shall publish as news to the public. News reporting should be direct to the point and simple structure of words. Use simple and good arrangement of words that any body can understand. For sure, I know you understood me Naeling. I am not also in particular to where the school is located. That is not my subject. My subject is right grammar to read for every body specially our kids so that they shall do the same and practice good and effective English. I am hoping I am not into trouble with all of you Guys. Thank you.

        • Hopeless Abrenian……. good that you have mentioned this KTL stuff and have also read the different impressive words coming out from the mouth of these kids, but when I tried to post something it won’t let me in. Why, it’s because I’m using a loving acronym with my real middle name or I just don’t know what am I doing due to computer ignorance or illiteracy? I clicked everything like “timeline/group/etc.” but still my postings went to my own timeline without any explanation why? If my AKA is the reason, then please be more lenient kids for sharing any kinds of opinion like what we are doing hereat Abrenian.com is more important than the names behind the opinion/s because some of us are just humble to accept credit/discredit for what we shared.
          If anyone of you from this “KapututanTL” group that can read my sincere calling, please teach/guide me patiently on how to do it. I know head to toe just four of this group but I know by heart a few of this kids’ parents and some if not majority of them are my relatives which I am very desirous to interact with them. Will you, please?

          CONGRATULATIONS….!!!! San Quintin for the coveted Silver Marker you are so proud of. Mabuhay kayo at tayong lahat..!!!

        • This is from Ms. Maria Teresa B. Benas:

          English
          “The school, which is the first barangay as one enters Abra from Ilocos Sur.”

          Ilocano:
          “Tay eskuela nga isu ti umuna nga barangay kas umuneg ka ti Abra naggapo Ilocos Sur.”

          My Question for you Naeling:
          Apay ta eskuela ti umuna nga barangay….ti mali ni PhD’m nga Ms. Maria Teresita B. Benas ket ket saan nga school ti ikabil na no ket Tangadan. Naawatam?

          Kastoy ti husto Naeling ibagam kenni PhD’m nga Ms. Maria Teresita B. Benas mo.

          “Tangadan where in the school is located is the first barangay of San Quitin if you are coming from Ilocos Sur.”

          Ilocano translation na para kanniam Naeling.

          “Tangadan nga isu ti nagdiswan ti eskuela ket isu ti umuna nga barangay ti San Quintin no umuneg ka naggapo Ilocos Sur.” Naawatam Naeling? No saan awan maaramidak dakon. Agpasuro ka ken Ms. Maria Teresita B. Benas mon. Salamat po.

        • Hi, ms Joan. You seems to be in a troubled water. You criticized Ms. Benas of a wrong grammar. But there was actually no grammatical errors in the article. What you mentioned to what should it be was the one. Now you became a laughing stuff. By the way what was your field of expertise? Ms. Benas is a PhD. and a College Professor if you don’t know. The problem with some people, they are making suggestions even when they are not in the position to. Worse, they are even criticizing those who are experts in their fields.

  2. To err is human…… . Ang mahalaga dito ay yong magandang balitaan na nagbibigay ng kakaiibang feeling and the message of the outstanding accomplishments ng TES. We will observe here the value of hard works n cooperation s between community n school. How I wish to hear more schools be supported the way the local government of San Quintin provided hands for improving the needs of schools n teachers. This is a show of an epic cooperation which needs to be emulated by other municipalities. This is the kind of news which we should be proud of to brag about Abrenians capabilities to achieve excellence thru the true essence of the value of cooperation. Our salute for a job well done!

    • Big NO Tagamasid. It is very important. That is the problem now that we are facing in the Philippines specially in the provinces- poor if not very poor English reading comprehension and writing abilities of their students. Yes, we are all there to support Tangadan Elementary School for the great achievement that they brought for Abra. But my other point here also is that MS. TERESITA B. BENAS should be more careful on her writing that this shall bring confusions to young students regarding her basic wrong grammar and arrangement of right words etc. I hope Tagamasid, all is understood for you.

  3. We have all the reasons, good reasons to do things right. I have no reason to justify mistakes, but I still believe only God the father n His son Jesus is perfect ( iis used because they are One). Remember when one of the disciples said to Jesus to show us the Father, He said ” I’ve been with you for a long time, yet you ask me to show us the
    Father”. Your SORRY PO IS APPRECIATED, but the word ‘kainis writer pa naman should have been avoided. To me, it’s an unkind words a kind of insult to injury. Miss Benas is only human to deserve respect. Remember too Joan, of all our mistakes, God forgives us. He didn’t utter unkind words. Isu siguro nga pinarsua na tayo nga agkidemkidem saan nga kas dudon tapno sagpaminsan saan amin nga tay napipintas ti makitkita tayo.

    • So when did commenting on how people write become a Bible issue, Pastor tagamasid?

      Posted by Boss | August 10, 2013, 6:54 pm
      • Tagamasid is just trying to demonstrate the art of “forgiveness” and convincing us to practice it in all aspects of life, if we will or just give it a try for once. If not, fine, but please don’t make a big deal out of it by crossing the line of a well- matured or educated form of conversation.
        That’s just how spiritual believers act or pacify things if out of control especially if it hurts someone.. No matter what, they choose to forgive rather to hate for this will bring peace of mind instead of misery that ruin our self-esteem and stress that might affect our emotional and physical well-being if the criticism was done destructively but unintentionally like in your case. If you don’t like what I’ve said or my grammar is wrong, could you also forgive me, please? Huh..basang and bossing?
        Thanks and have a nice and blessed day…..

      • Non sense Boss. It is useless having discussions with Tagamasid. How dare you dragged the Holy Book in our discussions. Stop and shut up Tagamasid. Lack of ethics people.

        Posted by JOAN | August 11, 2013, 12:17 am
        • Such a display of kind of ethics and attitudes don’t only hurt the feelings of fellowmen but hurt more of herself- a bulgar display of arrogance, unchristianity, devoid of Truth. Man to be happy must be prudent and should think, act, say words according to the teaching of The Lord. People who attempt to exalt themselves will be humbled in the end. Unless one is guided by His loving teachings, he will reap miseries throughout his life because he will never experience the love of others. The golden rule must always be man’s guidance in life, to do otherwise will surely render endless frustrations.

          Thanks PPA AMMATIT for the support. Sorry for bringing the real issue off tangent. But our great reward is the value of our chance to present some points far greater than any carnal accomplishments in this world.

          Posted by Tagamasid | August 11, 2013, 3:21 am
        • With all due respect JOAN, respect for people, especially elders is an unmistakeable sign of ethical behavior. Oh yes, there is always a better way of doing things, I have no quarrel with that. But there are many imaginative ways to correct people without insulting them. I would like to believe that Abrenian.com is a venue where people can freely express their views, opinions and comments. Some will agree and others will disagree but a modicum of respect is expected from everyone. None of us is perfect. Let us disagree if we must, but we can do it without hurting people.

    Posted by PETER | August 11, 2013, 8:01 am
    • I don’t think so Peter. The world is so addicted now with worldly things unmindful of its devastating effects at the end or anytime of their waking life. They forgot to look back and asked themselves one more time if they are still on the right track after their mission or purpose in life. Are their souls still safe by the raging fire in hell or are they not subject to the dreadful effects of karma if they continue to ignore the will of our Creator while still living? This is the reason why the true believers are so alarmed and trying to save a soul anywhere they went (even to the end of the physical world including the Internet) or any kind of human being they met, even in prison cell or in prostitute den, coffee shop or barber shop for their LOVE and CONCERN with them, even to the most scary hardened criminal, surpasses any kind of human understanding.
      You impressed me anyway with your last phrase “it should stay in our hearts”. I know of what kind of believer you are which just like me, still classified as lukewarm believers unlike Tagamasid that has no shame to bring the Word everywhere and never be intimidated by anyone including the most vicious politician because not only he couldn’t feel fear but he felt deep satisfaction (like the angels in heaven that are singing) if there’s only just one, even just one Abrenian that he could convert to be a real or true Christian. He is doing this (correct me if I’m wrong Tagamasid) like Pedro Abrenio and some of us for the sake of God’s people that someday or in the near future, this Christian that he converted will be emulated by two, three, or more, then surprise of all surprises, they will then become our front political leaders in the province.
      But please forgive me Peter if ever I crossed the line.

      Posted by apepep-paypaynang | August 11, 2013, 3:29 pm
    • Well said manong Peter.

      People are clearly missing the point here. What manang Joan was saying is that the writer needed to clarify her article. She may have been wrong in adding “Kainis naging writer pa.” However she ended by “sorry po dami pa rin namang makakabasa dito- ang gulo.” She only wanted the article to be more understandable kasi while we are mostly – if not all – Abrenians here and we know where on earth Tangadan is, paano naman ang mga non-Abrenians na nakabasa nito sa Philippine Information Agency, where this article is originally posted? Siyempre maguguluhan sila if they are not familiar with Tangadan.

      While we commend the school and thank the writer for posting something about it, please please make stuff clear para walang gulo.

      Posted by Boss | August 11, 2013, 6:32 pm
      • No one was missing the main point of Joan here. Please don’t use that phrase again for it appears that someone or we are all “tanga” that we couldn’t understand what was she driving at. The only reason why they came to the aid of Tagamasid because you and her were throwing inappropriate kind of adjectives. I don’t understand why you can’t accept biblical words when even during the persecution/prosecution of the ex-President of the USA (Bill Clinton) and the ex-SC Justice Corona, the members of the interrogating panel cited one of the the Bible verses by asking something like this “Whoever among you that have not sinned, may now throw the first stone?” Pero natatawa ako dito kay Corona case dahil pati nagtatanong ay kurakot din yata? ha..ha..ha…kaya dapat kanya-kanyang batuhan na lang sana, di ba? ha..ha..ha…
        Going back to other issues, aren’t we all sinners but already forgiven through the blood of Jesus Christ? So why can’t we just forgive one another instead of hurting each other? If only this is a civil, criminal, etc. case, fine, for we still have the law of the land to deal with it. But we only have a negligible mistake here that blown out of proportion because it is hurting somebody’s feeling. If you were that person, how would you feel it?

  6. The emergence of Tangadan Elementary School as the top performing public school in the province of Abra is an affirmation of the fact that people can rise above the challenges of life and that if they strive hard enough, they can be the best they want themselves to be. We cannot control the kind of cards life will deal to us but we can always make full use of what we have. The teachers and the parents truly deserve the recognition because of the fine work they have done to help the children excel in their studies. The mayor also deserves meritorious praise for providing the needs of the school. When people come together to work for a common cause greater than themselves, anything can be achieved. As the saying goes, it takes a village to achieve progress. I hope and I pray that all schools, public and private, will also strive to raise the quality of education in their respective schools. The Tangadan Elementary school, with its meager resources has shown that it can be done. “Kung gusto may paraan, kung ayaw may dahilan”. A good education is a ticket out of poverty.

    • I agree with you Pedro Abrenio. Education is a good way out from poverty. Another is sports. These two things should have to be considered along by our elected local officials to uplift among our youth in Abra. Not only in Abra but also nationwide. Education and sports.

      I want to share something that I read upon 2 months ago in national news. I was very disappointed that while I was reading the news regarding the missing and misappropriations funds for our athletes who are preparing for international sports events. They took the money away and nothing to be found. The people who were in charge didn’t have any clue or acting as if they never knew etc. To cut my story short, how could they done this that even funds for our athletes they never spare? This is disappointing.

    • For Joan Uttog.

      This is already foul and far from acceptable. As all have stated here that this is an open discussion and we are all free to share what we know and think, thus, we are not that easy to accept to what is right for others if you find it not right for you. We are also free to show our disappointment but not to show harsh words towards others. Look what you just did Joan Uttog.

    • Ms. Lina can you give your better arrangement if you have?

      • Hi, ms Joan. You seems to be in a troubled water. You criticized Ms. Benas of a wrong grammar. But there was actually no grammatical errors in the article. What you mentioned to what should it be was the one. Now you became a laughing stuff. By the way what was your field of expertise? Ms. Benas is a PhD. and a College Professor if you don’t know. The problem with some people, they are making suggestions even when they are not in the position to. Worse, they are even criticizing those who are experts in their fields.

  11. Dr. Benas is an honorable public person with a lot of achievements. How in this word that she is being criticized with that perceived error. I see no wrong with the statement, “First barangay as one enters Abra” ” from Ilocos sur” It is wrong when you did not mentioned “Ilocos Sur”. otherwise it might be somewhere in Malibcong or one from Abra Ilocos Norte road. People used to know more of Abra in its totality, like buses have their caratula “Abra”, not “Bangued”. The only thing I know why others are sour grapping is that “San Quintin” was not mentioned. That was understandable. Well, codos to Tangadan Elementary School for a brilliant achievement. I was wondering why others from the cabisera were not able to do such feat.

    Posted by naeling | August 14, 2013, 6:46 pm
  12. In the first place, Tangadan, San Quintin was already mentioned. To mentioned it twice is no longer needed. It is of the writers preference if she will make another description of the place, which is the “first Barangay as one enters Abra from Ilocos Sur”. Bihasang manunulat si Ms. Benas if you don’t know.

    • We start from first if not change the whole arrangement of words if we wish to correct the news report Naeling. What I said there on my first message is just one.

      Posted by JOAN | August 18, 2013, 1:12 pm
      • Wrong again ms. Joan. I am not LINA. Check your gun before unleashing, it might backfired. You hardly could straightened your English and yet you have the guts to criticized others and a writer at that. Ridiculous. A sayings for you, if you have the intelligence to discern; “Ang latang walang laman, maingay”.

    • Ladies……..?
      Your discussion is very interesting and informative but no one could judge that both or neither of you were right nor almost right. It’s a human nature that everybody considers his/her own opinion as perfectly right, otherwise, there should have been a court of opinion that decides. If there’s one or some that had been existing but I don’t know of, still the verdict would be null and void because you know why? Mathematics is the only perfect science which you can not stop finding the right formula until you’ll find the exact solution. If you consider English as a science then end of discussion because of its imperfection. If not, please continue your brainstorming but I need to remind you, although it’s obvious that you are both experts on your rights, to refrain from crossing the line. I didn’t say that someone already has……. that you might react defensively/offensively. You are both professionals and we are certain you will act like one but we are just worried that you might be carried away by your emotion. Indeed, we will be more impressed with your tenacity in finding the closure of this mind-boggling topic if you could find one. Good luck to both of you and please continue entertaining us if still your high level of intelligence says otherwise or not be convinced that only Math is a perfect science. I might be wrong, so please pardon my uncalled/unsolicited intervention.

  14. Publications of news or articles always get scrutinised by an editor to: get this, not to guarantee perfection but for the piece to get the points across and to be understandable in the clearest possible manner to as many readers as possible. There is no such thing as perfection in language, grammar or otherwise. Language is forever evolving. The English language by itself, has evolved into so many versions that, today, there are practically even more speakers of ‘pidgin’ versions than the Queen’s English. It is not fair to scoff at Ms. Benas for the report on the basis of minute errata (if we are that pedantic with grammar and the like). It’s really quite condescending to do so because of our presumed superior measure of knowledge of the language. Native English speakers, by the way, can spot those who speak English as a second language from miles away and are open minded about the ‘pidginisation’, corruption, diminution, alteration, embellishment of their very own language. It does not hurt to learn ‘open mindedness’ from them, I guess. By the way, it might be worthwhile checking out whether the term ‘Pilipino’ applies to language only and that the word ‘Filipino’ is the right reference for people.

    • There you are ladies….
      But Abrenians all over the world will not just let you go and end this highly regarded sharing of ideas if the main involved/concerned will not make up by kissing each other. Tagamasid and others will only be qualified for a group hug. Fair enough, our spiritual counselor?
      If you refuse to do it ladies, I will call Syoke and his company to make you to do it like what they did at the other thread. You have no idea how this making up makes our day….
      Applauding you in advance, and like what Tagamasid says: God loves you and so do we..!!!

      Posted by palakopak | August 18, 2013, 9:34 am
  15. But wait, we need to thank the ladies first for if they didn’t start and prolong this argument, we should have not heard the above input of the above arbiters. Maybe some of you were already aware of it but honestly? I am not..
    So my sincere gratitude goes to their unselfish intervention as well.
    Have a great day Abrenian posters, admin, viewers, and eavesdroppers…hi..hi…just kidding for the last uncalled word. My bad…I love you….

  16. Asking an apology is not a sign of weakness. It is a sign of strength that shows the real content of your heart and provides outright “peace of mind”. Whether you will be forgiven or not, the reward is still the same but it doubles for the forgiving, helpful, and loving person. It brings back her/his sanity, energy, vibrancy, good luck, and some marvelous feeling not to mention the vivid smiling face of our guardian angels who are watching each in everyone of us in our daily endeavor in life. Don’t let that stress kills you for it has been said “when you are angry or in the mood of hating (worrying or in fear) your blood clots and can’t flow through your arteries and veins that cause sudden death or physical/mental disability,” if not miraculously/medically prevented. It’s not hard to change because the real battlefield is only in the mind where you could easily defeat that stubborn unwilling mind through persistent talking (praying) to Him.

    But don’t get me wrong. this forgiveness will not be applied to the thieves, criminals, liars, and hypocrites unless they are really sincere to repent and amend from their evil ways with tangible evidences. They should first submit themselves in the court of law for the redemption or punishment equivalent to their sins against humanity, then and only then, that we could pour out our forgiveness and godly love on them. And the secret is, just forgive them in your heart but your mouth/pen should continue to condemn their wickedness until we will able to send them where their “second chance” (jail) is waiting. Because if you stop, they think that what they were doing is okay and it’s a lot harder then to save their souls from the raging fire of hell.
