Head Prefect's Address

Aug 29, '17

Good afternoon family members, friends, staff, faculty, fellow Brentonians, and graduating class of 2017. As Mr. Patel mentioned, this year I had the greatest honour of being Brentwood’s Head Prefect, and I want to start off today by saying thank you, to all of you that believed in me and gave me the opportunity to be your Head Prefect. Part...

Though I’m sure those who look at me and think “little man syndrome” won’t believe me, I had no expectation of actually being the valedictorian. In fairness, I believe I proved my way with words by bridging the 12-inch vertical gap between m3 and Emma Frisch in Grade 9, but who am I to bear the responsibility of summarizing four years of...

Mrs. Maggie Flynn

Aug 25, '17

It is my honor and delight to speak about Maggie Flynn. Mrs. Flynn followed her husband, Mike, to Brentwood in 1999. She was hired by Head of School Bill Ross and has worked for 3 Heads in her career here. She once let her girls gag and tie up Mrs. Pennells, in the Mack House phone booth and actually, she may still be there - someone should...

Mrs. Susan Quinton

Aug 19, '17

Once upon a time, an immigrant from the wilds of Winterpeg, where she taught English and drama for 26 years, Susan Quinton arrived on campus in 2003 - pixie faced and bubbly - ready to pick up the torch in acting from Keith Digby, the retiring Director of Arts. The first chuckle I heard from Susan came as the result of a mistake. She had...

Rogers House

Boys... thank you. Time is a jewel, worth more than any coin or precious stone. Time is eternal, omnipresent, infinite, and different after every second, yet constant. Time is an inventor and an artist - a masterpiece. It is a wise teacher. A giver and a taker. It is an invisible adversary, yet it is yours. Time can also be a gift, and let me tell...

Whittall House

Aug 07, '17

Although a deceivingly short time has passed, this year’s group of Whittall boys have transformed from a collection of friends and strangers to a brotherhood bolstered by Whittall’s foundational values of Honour, Integrity, Perseverance, and Trust. The boys battled ferociously for the Interhouse title alongside the Alex girls, but also spent...

Privett House

Aug 03, '17

2017 has been an outstanding year in the Halls of Blue. Although I think it is fair to say that either facilities or the school administration turned down the heat in Privett in the fall, a select group of young men entered in September, ready to take on anything and we have turned it back up! From Day One, every grade stepped up to their...

Mackenzie House

Jul 30, '17

Mackenzie, although a boarding house, is not a house at all; it is a home. It is home to 3 big dogs, 1 cross-eyed cat, 2 energetic boys, 1 Bridger, 1 Neil who likes tea and bow ties, 1 rugby Olympian, 1 Lulu McCallum who is herself a home to a soon-to-be baby, 1 flawless Sue Cheung, and 71 individuals who fill the hallways with laughter and fill...

Hope House

Jul 26, '17

A year in boarding follows a narrative arc. The introduction, began when 26 new girls arrived in an unfamiliar setting; characters met & an atmosphere coalesced, created by the girls who formed the dramatis personae. Underpinning myriad plots & character development are our house values of kindness, inclusion, respect & service. A good story...

Ellis House

Jul 22, '17

This year has undoubtedly been a momentous one in Ellis House history. Through good times and hard times the boys have consolidated as one unit, and an unforgettable sense of camaraderie has been established this year. From Lewis’ unforgettable, tear-jerking, rendition of “Delicate” to Zaid, Cameron, and Julian’s star roles in the play, Picasso at...
