Eswatini Adventures

Apr 15, '20

On March 4th, a group of 20 students, Mr Robinson and Mrs Cheung, their two boys, and Ms Hall started our journey to Eswatini. After 31 hours of travel, we arrived in Johannesburg, South Africa. We spent one night there and then started our six-hour bus ride the next morning to Eswatini to a game park named Mlilwane. We were welcomed by...

Yeah, Young Eddie Here!

Apr 14, '20

On the first day of spring break, four tenacious young filmmakers headed off early to Vancouver to attend an award ceremony featuring their prized rap video. The journey to this point was tough: many green screens were straightened, too many bars were spat, and too much skill was exhibited. Nonetheless, the work had paid off and this was their big...

A Strong Brentwood Community Around the World

Apr 13, '20

With the declaration of Covid-19 as a pandemic, it was inevitable that the Brentwood campus would close down, putting students, families and staff under stress and our Grade 12s in fear of a year without graduation rituals. Over the past couple of weeks, however, Brentwood has continued to hold classes and tried to maintain a robust electronic...

As we settle into the routine of online classes and distance learning at Brentwood, students, staff, and families may be looking for ways to stay connected to others, and to the programs and values that direct life when we are on campus.

An International Online Learning Experience

Apr 10, '20

Being a Brentwood student these days is unique. The international students, in particular, are facing a different way of learning that takes place at special times. For many Brentwood students, the daily routine is the same as classes start at 8:15am. But as Brentwood is a school with students from all around the world, for many of us it is a...

A Boarderless Boarding House

Apr 08, '20

It has been said that the quietest place on Earth is in an anechoic chamber - whatever that means. My research shows that it is an echo-free room, with a net sound measured in negative decibels, meaning the only sounds a person is able to hear are the sounds they produce: a heart beating, a stomach gurgling, or even a vertebrae slowly creaking...

So, You Think You Have it Tough…

Apr 06, '20

So, you think you have it tough. You think online schooling is “too hard.” You think waking up 10 minutes before class, warm and cosy in your blankets, merely reaching to your bedside table to grab your computer, and making your way to class from the comfort of your king size bed, is inconvenient. You think your internet is “too slow” for your...

Covid-19 Adjustments

Mar 26, '20

The virus that has been steadily increasing its international reach is changing our lives in so many ways. Currently at over 400,00 cases worldwide, many cities and countries are in states of emergency, with governments encouraging, and even mandating, social distancing and self-isolation in homes.

A Message from Our Head Prefect

Mar 25, '20

Dear Students and Parents, Normally, when I talk to you, I can see you face-to-face. I can walk across the stage, shake Mr Patel’s hand, and stand behind the podium to inform you that this Thursday is “National Make Up Your Own Holiday Day”. I can’t do that anymore. When we left Brentwood’s gates on March 6th, I don’t think too many of us thought...
