Our School song – Wings to Fly

TES School Song was composed in 2018 by three of the school’s teachers: Ivi Rausi-Haavasalu – Music Teacher, Triin Suurküla – Art Teacher, and Ian Karell, Primary Class Teacher. It was performed for the first time during the school’s 5th Anniversary Concert on 27th April 2018. 

We all have our different dreams and backgrounds
Everyone is special and unique.
But there’s something common that unites us
we’re not just a school, we’re family.

Chorus:
This song is for you, my school, my friends.
Together we can reach the sky.
And when comes the day to say our goodbyes.
We will have the wings to fly.

When it’s time to leave and find our future
We follow our hearts and live our dreams.
As we soar ahead the years keep passing,
we’ll treasure all the joy we shared today.

Chorus:
This song is for you, my school, my friends.
Together we can reach the sky.
And when comes the day to say our goodbyes.
We will have the wings to fly.
