Women's Month Activities

Timoteo Paez Elementary School joins the nation in celebrating the 2022 National Women’s Month. This month-long celebration is in recognition of women’s role and contribution in nation-building and as agents of national development.  

The theme “We Make Change Work for Women” from 2017 to 2022 highlights the empowerment of women as harbingers of change that is anchored on malasakit at pagbabago. Its sub-theme: “Agenda ng Kababihan, Tungo sa Kaunlaran” is a celebration of women exercising their choices, taking chances to make their voices heard, and benefitting from and trailblazing changes.

                With this, lined-up activities have been prepared to empower and involve the TPES girls and women in support to the advocacy.
