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...

Bringing the Best in 2019

Jan 07, '19

After an action-packed first term, and a much-needed winter break, students return in the new year to another exciting term at Brentwood. Soon after everyone is back, the interhouse competitions will resume with floor hockey on the first Saturday.

How to Travel Stress Free

Jan 05, '19

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. In our houses, however, we had a long list of festivities lined up for the approaching weeks until our Winter Break. All the students and faculty start to feel...

As the end of 2018 approached, Brentwood’s beloved traditions continued, one of them being the annual Snowball. On Saturday December 8, our Crooks Hall was transformed into a Winter Wonderland for the formal occasion. The night was filled with good food, good company, and a magic show to end it off. The night began with the exchange of gifts,...

Thanksgiving for Everybody

Dec 30, '18

Thanksgiving Day, for American people, is surely an important day and it is also for Canadian people, but, as an Italian, I can tell you the rest of the world has just one question: What really is Thanksgiving? In fact, in my part of the world Thanksgiving is always related with the image of a family sitting together with grandparents, aunts and...

The Life of Ellis

Dec 29, '18

Ellis House is composed of a great range of gentlemen and house parents. It also contains hard-working duty staff, who are the backbone of Ellis. The delight presented to the Ellis boys, at the beginning of each week, comes from the hilarious joke delivered by Mr. Cowie on Monday nights. Typically, this joke consists of a historical European...

The Winter Break Reset

Dec 21, '18

It’s that time of year again. We have clawed and crawled our way along this treacherous, rocky path that is first term, but we have arrived: Winter Break. It is finally time to relax and unwind, while also reflecting on the memories and experiences that we have gained since our September arrival. All those late nights plowing through assignments,...

Secret Santas in Allard

Dec 19, '18

To get into the festive spirit right before we all go off for Winter Break, Allard House does Secret Santas, meaning that each girl in the house buys three little gifts, and then one big gift, to give to another girl in the house. Over the span of three days you can expect little chocolates, fuzzy socks or notes to appear on your desk, signed by...
