Taking a Trip to Kamloops: Girls Rugby 7’s

Nov 09, '18

On Friday October 19, Brentwood’s girls rugby team departed to Kamloops for a 7’s tournament. The bus ride there was a heaping eight hours, with bus troubles along the way and an hour and a half dinner stop that was anticipated to only be forty five minutes. Despite the long drive, the girls arrived at the hotel in Kamloops safe and sound and...

Who Needs a Mid-term Break?

Nov 07, '18

For most Brentwood students and faculty, that is a rhetorical question. After 10 weeks of school, of course we need a mid-term break. Don’t dare get between me and my afternoon nap/Netflix account/bus to the airport/mainland! For several groups of Brentonians, however, mid-term was about staying together, having fun and pursuing excellence. Mr...

Saturday’s lashing rain in Nanaimo made the hilly 6.2 km course a slimy mud bath: cross country perfection!

The boys’ team of Keaton H, Sunil C, Hugh R & Juan NP finished 13th of 30 teams, with Keaton coming 12th in a field of...

Choosing to Be

Nov 03, '18

“To be, or not to be? That is the question.” At Brentwood, about 20% of the student body chooses to be, and half of that 20% have made their choice in the last 3 months. 100 students here are part of the rowing program, with 50 of us just trying it out for the first time this fall. Coming into the season, I had never been in a rowing shell...

Character vs. Adversity

Nov 02, '18

On some days, everything seems to fall into place. On others, “things fall apart, the centre cannot hold”. Over the past 30 hours, it has been more the latter than the former for the Senior Boys Soccer team as they hosted the North Island Championships. In their opening game against Wellington, the boys fell behind 3-0 in the opening 10 minutes....

Home Schooled to Boarding School

Nov 01, '18

Growing up in community on a small island is not your typical childhood. However, it has been something I will never forget. I was born and raised on an organic produce farm on Salt Spring Island, farming and stewarding the land with the community I was brought up in. I was homeschooled until Grade 8, so I spent almost 100% of my time before that...

Senior Soccer Looks North

Oct 28, '18

The Senior Boys Soccer team has had an impressive start to the 2018 season. The team, consisting of a mix of Grade 11s, 12s, and even a few grade 10s, has gone undefeated in the regular season so far. On September 20, Brentwood hosted their friends down the road, Shawnigan Lake School. The boys played well and came out with a convincing 7-4 win....

The Joys of the Head of the Charles Regatta

Oct 27, '18

First of all, the Boston Project Crew would like to say a massive thank you to Mrs Sage for organising the trip and to Mr Carr and Mrs Biesenthal for coaching us. It was an amazing journey and an incredible experience. The 54th Head of the Charles Regatta is the largest rowing event in the world with over 11,000 competitors from over 35 countries...
