On Saturday January 16th, a group of students piled into a bus to attend a Victoria Royals hockey game in Victoria.

At the our final full school assembly this term, it was so encouraging to hear Mr. Patel, our Head of School, list all of the events that have taken place at Brentwood since the beginning of this 2015-2016 school year. In the 100 days of school that we have had so far, Brentwood students have been involved in almost the same number of special...

To celebrate the diversity of the student body at Brentwood, staff and students have, for several years, run an OMNI support group. This year the meetings occur every Wednesday at 6.15pm in Crooks 131. We have a support group led by its members, and every week it features a different topic, a different speaker.

Soaking Up the Rain

Dec 14, '15

Baywatch or BAEWatch? For those of you who do not know the term “bae,” it means “before anyone else,” a common slang word for the youth of today. Mackenzie House decided to do a little bit of a play on words and use the theme of Baywatch/Baewatch when filming the open house video. Winter temperatures and a beach theme were an interesting...

Farewell Fitzy

Dec 11, '15

One year ago I spoke to the school about the great opportunity that was being presented to Mr. Wismer and his family, a year of professional and personal development at a boarding school on the other side of the world: Geelong Grammar, Australia, I had no idea at the time just what an incredible opportunity I was being given. It seems like...

Halloweek!

Nov 08, '15

Halloween is one of my favorite annual celebrations and what made this year’s celebration so marvelous was that the whole week leading up to it was full of fun Halloween-themed activities. Thanks to the Student Activities Council (SAC) I found myself on October 28 in the McNeill Centre surrounded by pumpkins. When I first arrived, I assumed...

Last Monday marked the debut of Brentwood’s first ever “Fright Week.” In previous years, the acknowledgement of Halloween had been the Dance and Costume Day.

Resume or Eulogy?

Nov 01, '15

Mr. Patel delivered this address to the school at Thursday’s assembly. On Tuesday, I was fortunate to observe Mr. Skardal’s English 12 class who were wrapping up a unit’s work and were in a reflective mood. As the class meandered, I was struck by one of the texts they’ve been using – David Brooks’ reference that "Eulogies aren’t Resumes”. ...

Healthy Grade 10s

Last Friday, our Grade 10s enjoyed some first aid training. They were all dispatched into groups and led through training including CPR, role playing, and emergency first aid.
