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

Jan 09, '19

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. The Junior Girls and Boys Basketball teams both have their ISA tournaments the following weekend,...

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...

Snowball 2018

Jan 01, '19

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,...
