Dear Brent family,
For the school year 2021-2022, at this time of distance learning, we continue with our strong commitment to our mission and the Brent Education Framework. We are proud to carry out distance learning through our Magic Mountain in the Cloud (MMC) program.
Guided by our mission and this year’s school theme, “ABOUND IN HOPE”, I am confident that all that we do will continue to inspire each other– especially from what I have seen of what we can achieve together as an active learning Brent community.
We surely can all be proud of our Brent community and how we have carried out traditions, and initiatives in meaningful and sincere ways despite these being virtual.
Likewise, we are proud of our diverse, highly qualified, and internationally trained teaching and support staff who are dedicated to our school’s mission and values.
With the Magic Mountain in the Cloud Primer and all our other resources on this website, we hope that members of our Brent family are informed on how to best thrive at our school and what systems are in place to support teaching and learning. If there are any questions, please feel free to ask– we are here to help!
To our returning students, we are excited to see you continue in the awareness and development of our Expected Schoolwide Learning Results (ESLRs), your strengths and areas of growth despite the challenges brought about by this extraordinary time in the history of humanity.
To our new students, may this school year bring you new found opportunities of learning and self-discovery. We are also excited to see you belong and thrive on our Magic Mountain.
To our returning and new parents, we are looking forward to a fruitful partnership in supporting your child in school and at home. We are a Brent family because of your invaluable role in supporting our learning especially at this time of distance learning.
To our new faculty, we are proud to have you part of the Brent Baguio family!
I end with our philosophy of education articulated no other than our founder Bishop Brent whose vision lives and breathes in all of us 113 years strong and beyond:
“Human strength is of a threefold character- physical, mental, spiritual. Each aspect of strength is more or less dependent upon and sensitive to the condition of the other two. A sound mind asks for a sound body as the normal medium of expression; and mind and body at their best form a feeble alliance unless a noble spirit animates both.” -Bishop Charles Henry Brent
May we all, as a Brent family, continue to pray for the world’s healing and thrive despite our challenges. Let us continue to grow and develop physically, mentally, and spiritually this school year.
May every day of this school year give us the gift to abound in hope!
