2. PTA Christmas Party- Thank you for a lovely PTA Christmas party! Congratulations to our PTA!

3. Congratulations to all our CAS clubs! We’d also like to thank Ms. Laura Johnson (CAS Coordinator), our Grade 11 and 12 CAS student-leaders, Grade 4 club initiators/leaders, and our faculty club/student org supervisors for sharing their passion, for their hard work and valuable contribution to making our MMC/Hyflex activities program a commendable opportunity for our students to connect, build community, sustain curiosity and care for one another.  We look forward to next semester’s rich and diverse activities program! ESLRs attainment is enhanced and varied because students develop life skills, values, relationships, and character through the CAS clubs/program offered at Brent Schools.

4. Congratulations to GIN on a successful bake sale!
