From the Headmaster – Distance Learning Likely Through First Semester

October 7, 2020

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.

Jason Atkins

One Month Of Celebration

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!

From the Library

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.

Way to go, Emily Burke and Aleia Johnston!

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.

Brent in Unity to Start the School Year Right!

Alumni, administrators, staff, teachers, and students all 80 voices show unity through singing.

This is one example that shows how Brent Pride is a family. In this family, we are one.
Our nationalities, age, race, and faith may differ, but we respect, value, and encourage one another in this family.

This school year may be a bit more challenging, but one thing remains. Brent Pride will continue to be there for one another.
We must remember that Brentonians are resilient, driven, and compassionate individuals and that as long as we’re together, we can do this!

From the Headmaster – August 25, 2020

August 25, 2020

Dear Brent Families,

Now that we are back to General Community Quarantine (GCQ), several school employees will be on campus to assist in handing out materials starting Thursday, August 27. Please see the chart below for the day to visit Brent, according to the surname of your student/s. Please also check for any government announcements that may affect your schedule.

One (1) representative of your family should come prepared to pick up materials that have been prepared for your student/s. At the same time you may return books and other materials, pay fees, or pick up Ganzas. Please take special note, students are still not permitted on campus as they are classified as youth and not permitted by the governing authorities to leave their household for non-essential reasons under GCQ guidelines.

In allowing individuals to come to school during this time we have developed strict guidelines to help deter the spread of COVID-19.

  1. No face shield, no entry. The IATF has made face shields mandatory.
  2. No mask, No entry. Wear face masks at all times. When wearing a facemask, make sure to wear, use, and discard it properly.
  3. Temperature checks. Temperature = / > 37.5 will be isolated and rechecked after 5 minutes. Individuals with a high temperature will not be permitted on campus.
  4. Practice social distancing. When in line, and whenever in the presence of others, keep at a distance no less than 1 meter from front, side, and back, at all times;
  5. Disinfectant. Step on the provided doormat with disinfectant before entering the school premises. Sanitize your hands often.
  6. Observe proper respiratory etiquette;
    • Cough and sneeze into a tissue or into your shirt sleeve if a tissue is not available.
    • Dispose of used tissues properly
    • Disinfect hands immediately by properly washing with soap and water or alcohol-based sanitizer immediately after a cough or sneeze.

Designated Days
To aid social distancing, we have scheduled a 4-day period for each family representative to visit Brent to collect materials. You may also return materials, pick up personal belongings, or settle balances. The schedule is organized alphabetically beginning Thursday, August 27 and is subject to change pending government announcements. Please take note of your day and time to visit the school in the chart below. Materials distribution will be held in the Cafeteria and Atrium, depending on the school level.

From Thursday, September 3 onward families may send a representative to Brent to pick up materials as they are able. Office hours are 8:30am to 4:30pm, closed for lunch, and adjusted as needed.

Return of School Materials (Books, etc.)
We will be utilizing the school cafeteria for collecting materials for those who still need to make returns. Please follow directions when you arrive on campus.

For returning students, the Ganzas are also ready for pick up.

If you cannot send a representative to school for some reason, let the school level secretary know, and we will attempt to deliver materials at a later date. We are still assessing how best to support students outside of Metro Manila or the Philippines. Don’t worry if you are unable to get materials right away. Teachers will be able to run classes with only digital materials for at least the first two weeks, and we will be flexible as needed.
