Thank you to all of you for making UN Dress Up Day a fun and memorable event! We just love that energetic Brent Pride spirit! Way to go, Lions! Stay zestful!

We love that our students are staying true to the Brent Pride Spirit even during distance learning. Last October 5, our grade 4-E friends surprised their homeroom teacher, Ms. Ashley Baker, with a song, a letter and a poem via a surprise call. What a way to show appreciation and encouragement to teachers to continue pushing through all the difficulties especially for those who are in a different time zone. No matter how challenging these times are, every bit of effort counts because our students are worth it!
This week we are celebrating Teachers Appreciation Week and this initiative is led by our PTA. We would like to thank our students and most especially our very supportive PTA officers for their wonderful contribution to the Brent Pride.
This year we celebrate Teachers Appreciation online. Teachers, your commitment and support to overcome the challenges of online learning is very much appreciated and valued.
Even with the uncertainties brought about by this pandemic, you faced this situation head-on. Your support to ensure that learning is happening across levels and time zones is invaluable. Your drive, compassion and resilience are very much appreciated. You are WONDERFUL!!!
We’ve got spirit! Go, Azure! Go, Emerald! Go, Gold!
Brent Pride spirit! Go, Lions!
Special shout out to all the Varsity Council members and advisors, Coach Trinchy Garcia and Coach Ninik Gervasio for making this online event a success!

Dear Brent Families,
I hope you are safe and adapting to the unique circumstances we all find ourselves confronted by each day. Our teachers have continued to adapt and improve the online delivery of class instruction, and we have endeavored to support our students socially and emotionally through chapels and counseling as well as some clubs and activities. I’m particularly proud of our Varsity Council for pushing ahead with Spirit Week despite the challenges.
The world is learning to manage business primarily online. Many universities are conducting virtual visits to Brent, and our WASC Accreditation visit will also be virtual.
That being said, we are all eager to return to in-person instruction as soon as possible. Unfortunately, Metro Manila remains on General Community Quarantine until the end of October, and a foreign travel ban is currently still in effect. We remain nimble, ready to adjust to circumstances as necessary, but most likely we will continue distance learning through the end of the semester.
Thank you all for your patience and for extending grace to those around you. The pandemic has created many personal and financial challenges for our families. Fortunately, our children are resilient. They will become stronger and more compassionate as a result of their experiences. We at Brent, from our staff to our faculty and administration, are proud to support the personal and academic growth of our students during these trying times.
God bless you all.

One month of online learning went by fast. It’s time to celebrate YOU!
We appreciate your hard work, your determination, our togetherness.
We started the school year with uncertainties, hesitations and even some obstacles but as a PRIDE, we figured it out and stayed positive together.
Lions, it’s not easy to do this alone so remember to encourage one another and build each other up, and just keep moving forward! GO, LIONS!

Students and Parents will now be able to check out books from our school libraries beginning September 28 via curbside pickup. Books will be available for pick up at the school drop-off. Books will be checked out, loaded into bags, and properly labeled with names prior to pick up.
No overdue fines will be charged during school closure but we do encourage everyone to be responsible in returning books on time.
To support social distancing efforts, libraries are operating with limited staff. Wait times for holds placed online may take a bit longer than usual. Thank you for your patience.

During the summer, Brent students Emily Burke and Aleia Johnston (gr 10) participated in the first online musical theatre workshop for teens with Repertory Philippines. Both were featured soloists in, On This Side of the World, a song cycle by Filipino composer Paulo Tiról. This was the first production of On This Side of the World to be performed outside of New York City.
