Dear Brent School community,
As we approach the end of the school year, we would like to express our appreciation and admiration for the outstanding work that our students and staff have accomplished. With just three weeks left to go, we’re almost at the finish line, and we have no doubt that we’ll make it there with flying colors.
Last week, we bid farewell to the last day of clubs. We extend our deepest gratitude to Ms. Laura Johnson, our Grade 11 and 12 CAS student-leaders, Grade 4 club initiators/leaders, and our faculty club/student org supervisors for their hard work and valuable contribution in making our activities program a commendable opportunity for our students to build community and care for one another. Well done, team!
We would also like to recognize the efforts of T. Elaine for organizing a fantastic Grade 2/3 field trip to SM on April 28, and thank all departments for their support in making this trip possible.
We appreciate T. James for conducting a highly informative session on TOK skills on Wednesday, May 3. The insights shared were truly valuable and greatly appreciated.
We would also like to acknowledge Ms. Glaiza, Ms. Cot, and Ms. Nida for planning and executing an enjoyable dorm outing on April 29-30. We extend our heartfelt thanks to all departments for their support in making this outing a success.
Next, we applaud T. Geraldine and T. Joshua for organizing a wonderful Grade 8 bonding activity on Friday, May 5. We are grateful to all departments for their support in making this event a memorable one. Keep up the excellent work, everyone!
We would also like to express our gratitude to Ms. Almae and the team, along with all the proctors, for running the Spring Map tests. Thank you for your effort and support.
We congratulate and thank Coach Boy, our house heads, leaders, and Red, Blue, and Yellow houses for an amazing and fun year of House Games!
