Gabriel Fabella

Co-Founder, Banton High School

60TH ANNIVERSARY MESSAGE TO BANTON NATIONAL HIGH SCHOOL


GABRIEL and FAUSTINO FABELLA worked hard to convince Bantoanons to support the establishment of Banton High School.  It was easy to convince the Bantoanons. The community supported the effort. They parted with their hard-earned pesos The corporation was organized... a building found, teachers recruited.

 

The list of stockholders was instructive. Buenaventura Fabella, was the long time principal.  The three Fabellas left their "educational" FOOTPRINTS IN THE SANDS OF TIME.

  

Our graduates have proven themselves in many fields - medicine, law, military, teaching and are found all over in the Philippines  and overseas - a testament to Bantoanon true grit.

 

To the Banton National High School, GOOD LUCK AND MORE POWER!
