Message From The Principal

Dear ELC & LS Parents,

Brent Manila had just gone through its WASC Virtual Accreditation this week and did very well. Thank you parents for your understanding and support as we made a few adjustments to our regular schedule to accommodate the visit. Special thank you to the PTA, as well as a number of our ELC & LS students, for taking the time to talk to members of the WASC Visiting Committee.

成人直播app软件下载We are mid-way through the second quarter of the year and have about five (5) weeks to go before the end of the first semester. So much great learning has been going on in classes across the grade levels, as the students finish up and start various units of study. At this point, we strongly encourage parents, particularly of upper elementary, to check in with their students on where they are in both their academic and special subjects. Please reach out to their teachers as needed. Let’s continue working together to ensure that the children finish strong.

Our “VIRTUAL BOOKLATAN 2020: A Showcase of Philippine Arts and Literature” is coming up soon on November 23-24. The word “BOOKLATAN” originates from the words, “BUKLAT” which means “to open” and “[Silid] AKLATAN” which means “library”. This year, we have invited two well-known Filipino authors for this event.

As shared in our last newsletter, we have set the dates and times for the live streaming of our ELC & LS Virtual Christmas Presentations in December. Links will be shared with parents early on the week of each show.

成人直播app软件下载Have a safe and restful weekend!

Warm regards,


Michelle R. Jingco

Christmas Charity 2020

Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will not be able to push through with our annual, face-to-face Biñan Christmas Charity. However, we are delighted to inform you that Brent has decided to proceed with this year’s Christmas Charity in a different way in order to help the Biñan community and the communities ravaged by the super typhoon “Rolly成人直播app软件下载” and our School agency staff.

By continuing our Brent tradition of giving back to the community every Christmas season, we would like to ask for your help and support for this year’s Christmas Charity 2020 to share the spirit of Christmas giving with our community.

成人直播app软件下载The donation will be sent to two places: half to Biñan and the other to a community in Catanduanes or in Camarines Sur and some for our Brent agency staff.

Donations can be in cash or in kind, and either would be much appreciated. Cash can be deposited to Brent International School Manila Inc., and indicated for Brent Cares Christmas Charity fund. Please find Brent School bank details here.

Donations in kind can be:

  • rice, noodles, bottled water (355ml or 500ml)
  • 3-in-1 coffee sachets, canned goods, 1kg pack sugar
  • blankets, towels, clothing, soap
  • fever, colds, cough medicine (tempra forte or biogesic tablets)
  • face masks, face shields, rubbing alcohol, PPE

成人直播app软件下载These can be delivered at the drop off area at the Brent Manila campus. The Christmas Charity drive will start on Thursday, November 12 and end on November 25, 2020, and the Christmas family packs will be sent out on December 15.

We hope you can look into your hearts and bring out the Christmas spirit to share with others.

Online Payments and Lions Card Loading in BASIS

An online payment feature has now been integrated into BASIS. This will allow you to make credit card payments using Mastercard, Visa JCB, AMEX, and debit card with Mastercard and Visa Logo.

成人直播app软件下载We have partnered with BDO and iPay88 to handle the payment processing. This means BASIS will not be handling financial transactions directly but mainly to facilitate the connection between clients and the payment gateway (iPay88), who in turn authenticates and processes the payment to the bank.

成人直播app软件下载Since we are at the initial stages of implementation, we will start with the Lion’s Card payments (e.g. school resources, APAC, books, cafeteria, etc.). As we progress through the school year, we will be including payment for tuition fees.
