Another Day, Another Sunrise

Jan 17, '19

Brentwood sits peacefully on the shore of Mill Bay, British Columbia overlooking the deep blue sea across from mighty Mount Baker. As you enter the gates to the school, trees sprinkled with fluttering bright red leaves greet you one after the other while you drive past the stunning new Foote Athletic Centre. The scenic Millenium Trail encircles...

SPARCle and Shine

Jan 13, '19

Finally. A breath of relaxation following the six strenuous days of school coming to an end. Brentwood students return to their dorms after a Saturday evening outing and shut off their early morning alarms in preparation for the well-deserved weekend on Sunday.

A Trip to ‘Berta

Jan 12, '19

Brentwood is full of international students who might not have anywhere to go for the short midterm breaks. This poses the question of “Who will I ambush, and how do I convince them to let me go home with them?” Luckily for me, I trapped Hannah C, Alex ‘19 in my little bubble of friends last year, and the two of us planned a trip to Las Vegas. We...

History Bytes

Imagine a world beyond sight and sound, a world in the distant and remote past: a world without cell phones, Twitter, Snapchat, Spotify, I pods, personal computers and video games, a school without smart boards, photocopiers, video projectors, solar panels, green buildings, differentiated food choices, coffee baristas - no you have not entered the...

It is the time of the year when we break free and go back to our nests to reset and refuel from term 1. While most of us are happy to do this, the happiness comes with the stress of travel. Stressing about excess baggage! Stressing about missing your flight! Stressing about forgetting something to pack or simply getting sick! Stress, stress,...

Spare Block: Desperation Sinks In as We All Need It!

Jan 04, '19

Having a spare block during our highly demanding and hectic high school schedule provides a much-needed break from the school day for Grade 12s. It allows us to mentally recharge and prepare for our next challenging endeavour. As we all know, senior year is by far the most stressful for all students. We have pressing responsibilities such as the...

Festivities in the Houses

Jan 02, '19

It’s January and there isn’t a singular snowflake on the ground. As a student from Northern Alberta, I don’t normally get that holiday feeling unless my surroundings are caked in white.
