Fiona Dalrymple

Here on the west coast of British Columbia, winter is synonymous with sports such as skiing and snowboarding. Brentwood is able to provide students with many opportunities to take full advantage of our province’s world renowned winter sport destinations. From weekly excursions up to Mt. Washington Alpine Resort, to our full-school ski day and mid-term trip to Silver Star Mountain Resort for International Students there are many chances for students to experience the joys of winter in BC.

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.
