Making the Musical Best of a Pandemic

May 28, '21

It’s not easy running choirs and bands in the middle of a pandemic, but somehow even with masking, cohorts, and physical distancing from one another, somehow, we have managed to keep going despite these obstacles, resulting in much success for our efforts. Our choirs and bands virtually entered various festivals this year, including the Canadian...

A Night To Remember

Feb 11, '21

It’s 8pm last Saturday night. Hundreds of behinds are seated on the very same tables on which we eat our meals. We are painfully aware of the Head of School sitting only a few meters away during a dicy stand-up comedy performance as we wonder “Can I laugh at this?” Then we’re put at ease once again and delighted with the talented voices of your...

The Voice - Brentwood’s Interhouse Acapella

Jan 07, '21

Apologies for my tardiness. It has taken me the last month to get over the astounding result from Interhouse Acapella, more specifically the stupendous placement of Mack/Ellis in the final results.

Farewell, For Now, From the Arts Prefect

Jul 07, '20

The following address was delivered at the School's final assembly of the 2019-2020 academic year in early June, 2020. Last night I was thinking about what to put in this final speech, and I did not know where to start. I didn’t know whether or not to make it about the people I’ve met, the lessons I’ve learned, the experiences I’ve had, or the...

The Arts Fair - Celebrating the Arts on Zoom

Jun 11, '20

We inherently understand how important arts are in everyone’s life either as the creator or the audience. Arts heal, console, inspire. They allow us to play. They are fuel for our hearts and minds. They lift us up. Every arts afternoon we have been privileged as our teachers continue to nurture the creative blossoming of all our students. We...

A Feel-Good Story

May 17, '20
