Me to We to Us

Oct 30, '14

Last Tuesday, 20 senior students made the commute to Vancouver to attend the spectacular We Day the following morning. We Day is a chance for students from all over to come together to watch live performances from people like Hedley, Nick Jonas, and many more. There are also speakers who give the audience a new way of viewing change and how we can...

One World in One Night

Oct 24, '14

Last Friday, students volunteered at the Cowichan Valley’s One World Festival and every student brought a piece of their home with them. The festival consisted of a wide range of cultural music, performances, a fashion show and international cuisine. Brentwood, a place where the world comes to board, is honored to have many different cultures and...

A Saturday of First Aid

Oct 04, '14

Last Saturday the Grade 10s dedicated eight hours to learning first aid. We were split into five groups, with different instructors, throughout the Bunch Centre. They taught us many useful skills, from basic first aid to CPR. The instructors would often have some students act as injured people, while others quickly came to aid them. We treated...

The D of E was developed over 50 years ago to encourage young people to challenge themselves and make positive contributions to their community.

October 18th, when Brentwood will be hosting one of the most entertaining events all year, AIRBAND, is less than a month away! This event allows you to come together with your friends in the house (and some houses might even pair up with their brother/sister house) to bust some moves to some of the biggest hit songs around, or even to some of the...

Cyber Safety

Sep 27, '14

“Hello, I'm Beth. And I'm fifteen,” Darren Lauer crooned to us. At first, this man (who was so obviously not fifteen and not named Beth) made us laugh. And then he made us think. And then he made us cry: I'm sure there wasn't a single person left in the audience who didn't feel impacted after his presentation on cyber bullying and digital...

Where I Am From

Sep 10, '14

I am from logical thoughts, math, physics and chemistry. Equations and functions made up my bones, curiosity accelerates in my blood, delivers thermal energy into my heart. I am from the Spring Festival reunion, the steamed fish, dumplings and fireworks-lightened night. I am from the shuffled Poker cards, myth telling, pumping up and...

We are Family

Sep 05, '14

Classes start in earnest today. The last few returning students arrived yesterday. One of the things that always strike me at the beginning of a new year is the emotions students show when they first see each other again after the summer holidays. Screams of joy, leaping and hopping up and down, and loud, raucous banter are everywhere on the...

The Head of School's Address to the Graduating Class – Closing 2014

Jul 12, '14

Good Morning and welcome to Campbell Common. As any good geographer knows, June 21st is summer solstice, the first day of summer and the longest day of sunshine for us in the northern hemisphere. How appropriate it is then that we bid farewell to the graduates of 2014 on our sun-drenched campus. We extend a warm welcome to some special guests:...

Priceless, Not Worthless

May 06, '14

No matter if it’s summer or winter, a sunny or rainy day, there is always a white Brentwood van waiting for a group of kind-hearted students outside of Crooks Hall on Sunday afternoon. This year, seventeen grade 10s and 11s have joined the Vancouver Island Health Authority volunteering program. These students are committed to volunteer at either...
