Let There Be Light

Sep 07, '18

In the 1980s, when my parents were teaching in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, I attended Lakefield College School. Rural, on waterfront, personal, and with a family feeling, LCS had many of the same qualities we cherish here at Brentwood. We teenage boys attended chapel several times a week - sometimes reluctantly - but we boisterously enjoyed singing...

What it Means to Me to Be in Privett

Aug 31, '18

As a Privetteer for three years, I have come to learn just what this amazing house is truly all about: trust, brotherhood, and pride. It is referred to by many as a second home and Privett has given me and countless other boys opportunities, structure, and social skills that simply could not be replicated anywhere.

Mr. Patel’s Favourites

I have enjoyed everything about Brentwood for the last twelve years and I'm not even a student yet, but here are a few things I have learned. There is absolutely no need to be nervous about this upcoming year. I promise,...

Thanks to Our Parents

Aug 20, '18

To our Houseparents I cannot say thank you, for a mere thank you is not enough of an acknowledgement or reward for all of the work they do for us.

Without these amazing...

My Experience In Privett House

Aug 19, '18

After my first year at Brentwood as a small and seemingly invisible Grade 9 student, I wanted nothing more than to be a member of Privett House. I had older friends from my previous school come to Brentwood and a lucky few of them were also given the honour of being placed in Privett. After hearing my first debate within the Colts rugby team about...

Hope House

Jul 12, '18

2017-18 was magical: we sailed through ups & downs, conflict & laughter. In the process of building life-long friendships, we learned to reflect, communicate & compromise. We learned to love & how to express our love. In September, we opened our arms to 27 new students. Although Orientation was hectic, girls immersed themselves in the inclusive,...
