End of the Year Events

Dear Senior Parents,

The end of the school year is fast approaching, and we want to highlight some important end-of-year events for our seniors. We are hopeful these events will be in person, but the last two years have shown us things change within a matter of weeks and days. We will continue to monitor IATF Guidelines up to each event and adapt as needed.

As we prepare to celebrate our Seniors’ momentous day on Friday, May 27, we will do so similarly to our current Hyflex Teaching and Learning setting. The Upper School will look at all facilities at our disposal to ensure our seniors can enjoy these end-of-year events in person while providing an enjoyable online experience.

Please view the tentative schedule of in-person events for our graduating Class of 2022.

Re-Enrollment for 2022-2023

Dear Brent Families,

April 18, 2022 was the deadline to reserve a slot or withdraw in preparation for the 2022-2023 school year. Please take care of this important task if you have not done so already. It is important to guarantee your child a slot.

Please see the Reservation and Re-Enrollment form on Brent’s website (About tab, Resources) for details on how to complete the form and pay the US$ 1,000.00 fee. If you are not yet sure of your plans, it is still wise to reserve a slot now as a 100% refund is available until June 17, 2022.

If leaving Brent, please email to complete the withdrawal process.

Thank you!

Bus Routes for School Year 2022-2023

Dear Parents,

While we will offer busing next school year 2022-2023, we cannot guarantee an immediate return to all of our pre-pandemic routes. If you are interested in busing next school year, please contact our transportation office at (02) 8 779-5140 ext. 518, or email, and they can help you with signing up. We ask that you complete this process on or before Friday, June 17, 2022.

The School Bus Service Fees / Schedule for next school year has both a Current Bus Routes list and a Possible Bus Routes list. When you sign up, indicate your preferred route from either list. Transportation will keep you informed as they combine routes and make necessary adjusts depending on total signups.

Thank you for your understanding and flexibility as we continue to rebuild our busing program after two years of dormancy during the pandemic. We appreciate your continued support of the people and programs here at Brent
International School Manila.
