Congratulations to APAC Dance, Orchestra and Choir for an outstanding representation of Brent Pride during the First Season APAC Conference.
Brent hosted APAC Dance this year. Congratulations to our fantastic dancers and the Activities Office for a job well done! Thank you to the Brent families who took in homestays.
Four members of APAC Orchestra deserve special mention: Seniors Skylet Kim for 2nd violin, Andrew Lee for 1st violin, Joshua Oyos for viola, and freshman Danielle Mariano for 2nd violin. They were chosen among 82 students, from six schools, to lead the finale piece, “Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis,” during the concert held in Kobe, Japan.
APAC Choir participated in the world premiere performance of “She Walks in Beauty.” Guest conductor, Dr. Axel Theimer, composed the piece especially for the APAC Choir Festival performance.
Great job, Brent Lions!
Thanks to all the Grade 5 students, parents, and the Brent Community for a successful Market Day. Our young entrepreneurs not only learned Economics concepts, they donated 100% of the profit. Our 5th graders donated more than 120,000 pesos to Center of Hope. Such awesome young Lions, showing great Brent Pride!
Congratulations to Samuel Grimes (Gr. 12) and Benjamin Grimes (Alumni ‘16) for a job well done representing our country at the Philippine leg of the FIA Formula 4 South East Asian Championship at Clark International Speedway last October 20-22, 2017.
Sam was able to get 2nd and 3rd places in two out of the weekend’s six races. He also won a trophy as the best rookie finisher in race two. Older brother Ben took two wins out of six races during that weekend, and finished on the podium five times, ending up 2nd overall. In total, they collected seven podium finishes, two race wins and a pole position for the country.
Way to go, Lions!
Next week, Monday through Wednesday, November 13-15, the ASEAN Summit may create some traffic delays traveling to and from school. Those living in affected areas may want to adjust their commute times or even choose to stay with a friend closer to school. We will be flexible with tardies and absences during this time, but hope to continue with classes. The actual impact on traffic is difficult to predict. We will adjust bus routes where issues can be anticipated. Thank you for your understanding.
