Advanced Rock Band

Oct 31, '17

Advanced Rock Band is a fine art primarily reserved for senior students who have experience with their instruments. Any instrument can be utilized in the band, but since the focus is rock, guitars, basses, keyboards and drums are favoured.

Everything is Debatable

Oct 30, '17

Early last Saturday morning, way before most Brentwood students would normally be stirring, 20 members of the Brentwood debate team boarded the school bus for the first debate tournament of the season.

Brentwood vs Cowichan High

Oct 29, '17

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. Thirty...

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,...

Silver at ISAs, 7-1 against Salt Spring, 8-1 against Kesley, 4-0 against Shawnigan, and a 3-2 exhibition win over a U21 men’s team -- the positive results continue to pile up like shoes at the door of a...

Robotics, Where Steel Flies

Oct 24, '17

The Brentwood Robotics Club is one of the smaller arts at the school, but we’re just as busy. Tucked under the stairs in the Centre for Art and Humanities building, we craft bots that could either lift you off the ground or give your Audi R8 a run for its money. Mr Doehler is the perfect teacher to have for this program as he designs unique...
