Literature Week 2021 “Old Worlds, New Worlds & Other Worlds” was a success!

Literature Week 2021 “Old Worlds, New Worlds & Other Worlds” was a success!

Reading, and the love for literature, has always been a priority for Brentonians. The annual celebration of Literature Week is an event our community looks forward to. More needed than ever, literature provides an escape and helps us continue to grow as we cope with hardships.

This school year some of the activities of Literature Week included a Book Character Dress Up, Mystery Reader, Spelling Bee, Show & Tell, Author Visit by Mr. Lysley Tenorio, and Reading Buddies–a beloved Brent tradition that promotes and builds a community of readers. Our little kids (and big kids!) all enjoyed Literature Week 2021!

Congratulations to IB Visual Arts Class of 2021!

Congratulations to our IB Visual Arts Class of 2021 for their successful completion of their art exhibit “UNMASKED.” Way to go, Lions!

That the students chose the word “UNMASKED” as their class exhibition title to highlight this art show is a revelation of sorts. They are exposing their thoughts and feelings through their works. They are uncovering their messages through their visuals. The works depict their experiences, unveiling their inner musings and baring their beliefs.

Congratulations to the Junior Council and Gawad Kalinga Club!

Congratulations to the Junior Council and Gawad Kalinga Club for the Success of Their Virtual Webinar Project, “Lumen”

The goal of this event was to encourage children in the orphanage to think about their dreams and jobs they want to pursue when they grow up.

It is heartening to witness Brent students finding ways to make a difference in the lives of others, despite the current pandemic situation. Truly embodying the goal of their Brent education which is to have a well-lived, and meaningful life that is of service to others.

Way to go, Lions! Keep up the good work.

We Care For Our Students

Challenging times are always easier when we go through it together. Praying for one another, encouraging each other, watching out for each other, and doing little things daily to help one another make the tough times bearable.

We are less than three months away from finishing the school year, which means we’ve overcome many difficulties together. This year has been a challenge for the Brent Pride, but instead of feeling defeated Lions have risen up and found ways to celebrate.

Classes, workshops, concerts, meet-ups, and camps may all have been done virtually, but the whole community helped to make sure that we continue these traditions and made efforts (big and small alike) to reach out to one another. The video highlights some of the things that helped us as a community to stay resilient. We are forever grateful!

Congratulations to the Geek Squad!

Congratulations to the Geek Squad for the Success of their TechBlaze Workshops

The Geek Squad’s TechBlaze team, led by Luis Oyson (gr. 11), successfully commenced their first two online workshops. With the help of their sponsor, Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO), there were more than 125 participants in their first workshop, and 75 participants in their second workshop.

Students from schools in Manila and South Korea participated in the event. Students, alumni and other guest speakers presented topics on entrepreneurship and technology.

Some of the Brent team and presenters included the following alumni and students:

Eugene Enclona ‘17 – My Journey to Google, Bachelor of Science in Engineering at University of Pennsylvania
Matthew Paulino ‘20 – Sustainable Technology, student at University of British Columbia
Bea Rondon ‘19 – on Being a Founding member of WiTech California, student at UC Davis
Seher Bhaskar (gr. 10) – Using Coda.IO
Aly Tuason (gr. 10) – The Basics of Starting a Business
Olivia Kwon (gr. 11) – Game Development
Luis Oyson (gr. 11) – The Startup Mindset, AI Technology
Isaac Destura (gr. 12) and Colin Rondon (gr. 12) were part of security during the workshops.

The online situation this school year didn’t stop our Geek Squad members in persevering towards making a difference in the lives of others. They found yet another way to help other students by giving them access not just to technology but by giving them knowledge that is necessary to help empower and inspire entrepreneurship and interest in technology and computer science.

Way to go, Lions! Best of luck on your third and final workshop happening on March 27.

We also want to congratulate our Grade 7 to Grade 10 students for competing in the “Grade 10 or below” contest! Note that we had students from Grade 7 to Grade 10 who competed in the contest for students “Grade 10 or below”.
