Miss Isabel Ramos was appointed as the first school principal and she also taught grade one pupils at the Aurora A. Quezon Elementary in Galas, Quezon City. Miss Ramos is one of 15 children of Don Alfonso Ramos, first governor of the province of Tarlac. One of her nieces, Ma.Carmen Ramos Reyes-Gaerlan, graduated from Holy Trinity Academy Elementary Department in 1955 and also became one of the principals of the same department.

  2. Dear Ramon,

    Thank you for visiting the website and yes, we are glad that a family member of Mrs. Bacani has gotten in touch with us. You are more than welcome to share stories that your mother told you about her stay at the Holy Trinity Academy.

  3. Dear Curatormuseo,

    Thank you for your reply. My Mom just turned 86 last July 11 and she is now with my sister, Sister Maria Socorro,FMA at Don Bosco Sta. Mesa. I have some more picture to share during her days there at Holy Trinity Academy and also picture of her as a student at Legarda Elementary School in Sampaloc, Manila.

    Best regards!
