How to Travel Stress Free

Jan 05, '19

It is the time of the year when we break free and go back to our nests to reset and refuel from term 1. While most of us are happy to do this, the happiness comes with the stress of travel. Stressing about excess baggage! Stressing about missing your flight! Stressing about forgetting something to pack or simply getting sick! Stress, stress,...

New Routes to the Top

Jan 04, '19

While most Brentonians were finding happy ways to enjoy their last few days of the holiday this afternoon, three staff members were busy on the climbing wall in the Foote Centre. Josie Olszewski, Dan Norman and Jacob Norman spent the day in a state of suspension - suspended from the top of the wall cleaning and removing the holds on several...

Spare Block: Desperation Sinks In as We All Need It!

Jan 04, '19

Having a spare block during our highly demanding and hectic high school schedule provides a much-needed break from the school day for Grade 12s. It allows us to mentally recharge and prepare for our next challenging endeavour. As we all know, senior year is by far the most stressful for all students. We have pressing responsibilities such as the...

A Terrific Tip Off

Jan 03, '19

After a whole first term of fitness, running lines, and late night Arts Day practices, the Junior Boys commenced their season by bringing home the Lambrick Park Tip Off Tournament trophy!

Festivities in the Houses

Jan 02, '19

It’s January and there isn’t a singular snowflake on the ground. As a student from Northern Alberta, I don’t normally get that holiday feeling unless my surroundings are caked in white. In our houses, however, we had a long list of festivities lined up for the approaching weeks until our Winter Break. All the students and faculty start to feel...

Thanksgiving for Everybody

Dec 30, '18

Thanksgiving Day, for American people, is surely an important day and it is also for Canadian people, but, as an Italian, I can tell you the rest of the world has just one question: What really is Thanksgiving? In fact, in my part of the world Thanksgiving is always related with the image of a family sitting together with grandparents, aunts and...

The Life of Ellis

Dec 29, '18

Ellis House is composed of a great range of gentlemen and house parents. It also contains hard-working duty staff, who are the backbone of Ellis. The delight presented to the Ellis boys, at the beginning of each week, comes from the hilarious joke delivered by Mr. Cowie on Monday nights. Typically, this joke consists of a historical European...

Brentwood offers a wide variety of arts courses, from rock bands and string orchestras to musical productions, dance, and acting, not to mention an array of visual and technical arts.
