During the past couple of weeks the gym has been regularly filled with our Senior A Girls Volleyball team working hard in preparation for some big upcoming events.

New to Brentwood

Nov 03, '17

I have to admit, there were a couple nights before coming to Brentwood where I tossed and turned in my bed for hours, trying to ease my anxiety.

Brentwood vs Cowichan High

This past Thursday the Brentwood Varsity Ice Hockey team faced off against our emerging rivals, Cowichan High, at the Island Savings Centre. The bus bounced around as our music blared and the boys got pumped for the game. As the team stepped on the ice, a wailing siren went off which everyone assumed was just a test of the new goal horn.

The Art of Potting

Oct 27, '17

Potting is a messy art, but something magical happens when I set foot into Mrs. Elmes’ pottery studio. It’s like I become a human magnet for all stray particles of clay looking to see the wider world. And no matter how hard I try to walk out clean, I always manage to take some home with me: little smears that I discover during dinner on my pants,...
