Field hockey is one of Brentwood's major competitive first term team sports. Open to girls of all age levels and abilities the school fields seven teams that participate in tournaments and leagues in the ISA. Our Junior girls compete in the Island Championships while Midget-level girls compete in the mid-Island championships. The senior team - the 1st XI - competes in the BC Provincial Championships and consistently performs well at this highly competitive level. Brentwood has dedicated field hockey fields and while the programme moves indoors for the second term it returns to the fields once again in the third.

Having a houseparent as a mother, Fiona Dalrymple grew up as a private school campus brat. Little did she know that sharing her mum with generations of teenage girls and wearing knee highs and kilts would be integrated so completely into her cellular makeup. After fleeing the West Coast in search of adventure (and to attend and play field hockey for Queen’s University), Ms. Dalrymple realized that her heart belonged in B.C. She met her husband at Shawnigan Lake School and has since worked at Glenlyon Norfolk School, Dwight International School, and Cowichan Secondary School. Ms. Dalrymple’s major passions in life are organic land care and the natural environment (and teaching math and science of course!). She is an outdoor enthusiast who helps organize the school ski trips, trains for triathlons, and mountaineers when she has a moment to spare.
