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.

From the Headmaster – August 25, 2020

August 25, 2020

Dear Brent Families,

成人直播app软件下载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成人直播app软件下载 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
成人直播app软件下载 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.

成人直播app软件下载 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.

Ganzas
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.

Sincerely,
Jason Atkins
Headmaster

Dear Brent Family,

Please note that Brent International School Manila still plans to begin instruction online starting August 24. The recent government announcement postponing the start of classes to October 5 is intended to give schools preparation time. Private schools already prepared to deliver online classes do not need to delay students’ education. Brent will be ready to start on August 24.

Sincerely,
Jason Atkins
Headmaster

Headmaster Update – August 8, 2020

成人直播app软件下载August 8, 2020

成人直播app软件下载Dear Brent Family,

It has been about two weeks since my last update announcing that classes will begin online, and two weeks remain before the first day of instruction. During that time meetings have continued with principals, teachers and department heads discussing ways to prepare for the upcoming school year. Professional Zoom licenses and other software like Go Formative are being prepared.

成人直播app软件下载While we learned a lot about online instruction last quarter, this will be the first time we have started a school year from a distance. Class lists and course changes may take some extra time. The weekly newsletters from each school level provide a lot of helpful information.

Lower School Newsletter

Middle School Newsletter

Upper School Newsletter

These will help keep you updated during these ever-changing times. Please also note that, although some faculty and students remain outside the country, we will still be following a daily Philippine based timetable to start the semester.

Some families have expressed concern about how they will get materials given that current quarantine restrictions prevent coming to campus. Teachers are being asked to prepare lessons that initially do not require offline materials. We are simultaneously preparing packets of material that may be delivered to your homes. If you still have materials you were not able to turn in from last semester, please have those ready for pick up at the same time.

Our circumstances are unusual but not insurmountable. We remain committed to providing a quality education. We understand our families are experiencing a wide array of unexpected issues. Please feel free to reach out to teachers, counselors, and administrators throughout the coming months. We are here to help.

Sincerely,
Jason Atkins
Headmaster

Headmaster’s July 23 Update

July 23, 2020

Dear Brent Families,

成人直播app软件下载Our prayers are with you and your families wherever you currently find yourselves. With a month left before the start of classes on August 24, a General Community Quarantine remains in effect for both Laguna and Metro Manila. When and how these will change remains uncertain and may impact the ability of families to commute and Brent buses to operate. A travel ban and limited flights have delayed the return to Manila of many members of our international community.

成人直播app软件下载Brent International School Manila has therefore decided to start the school year online. We believe that, given the ongoing uncertainties looking forward, it will be both safest and least disruptive to students’ education if we start online. Families face a wide array of circumstances, and we want to give everyone time to plan now without waiting until mid August. Online instruction will likely continue through the first quarter, but we are prepared to transition to in-person instruction quickly should circumstances significantly improve.

成人直播app软件下载Class assignments, access to materials and other questions will be answered by school levels and assigned teachers just before the August 24 start date. Our teachers have access to online delivery resources including Zoom, Google Classroom and the whole suite of Google applications such as Google Meet. A variety of other online resources are available depending on the particular subject and grade level. With our experience online last quarter, we will continue to refine our skills in providing a distance education. Minimizing screen time while maximizing educational growth is a challenge that varies by student age and subject area, but we are up to the challenge, and we look forward to working with our students this school year.

Answers to some Frequently Asked Questions can be found here.

成人直播app软件下载I hope this provides the ability to begin making some plans during these challenging times. We will continue to update you and remain nimble going forward. Thank you for your support and patience.

Sincerely,
Jason Atkins
Headmaster

Headmaster Update – July 9, 2020

成人直播app软件下载July 9, 2020

Dear Brent families,

成人直播app软件下载We are now halfway between the last day of school and the first day of the next school year. I hope you are all safe and well during these extraordinary times. At Brent we continue to plan on August 24 for the first day of school. In August we will assess government regulations and adjust our plans accordingly. The most current information on COVID-19 guidelines and foreign travel restrictions will inform our decision whether to conduct classes in person or online. Regardless what is ultimately decided, we are prepared to safely provide a comprehensive education. In the meantime, may the Lord bless and keep you and your loved ones. We will provide updates as August 24 draws closer.

Sincerely,
Jason Atkins
Headmaster
