21.1k Through the Heat of Oak Bay

Jun 06, '17

This past Sunday several Brentwood staff members and a student went to Victoria to compete in the Oak Bay Half Marathon. Even though it wasn’t a school organized event, many came to beat their time from last year and some came to participate for the first time. I had never run a half marathon before, so I happily joined the first-time newbies....

The Trail Blazers

On Saturday, May 27th the Junior Boys Rugby team had an early start in order to get over to Abbotsford to face off against Robert Bateman Secondary in the provincial quarterfinals.

A Game to Be Remembered

Jun 04, '17

The reason why the game against Robert Bateman will be remembered is not because we lost the game despite having more tries than them or because of the blistering hot conditions that we played under, but for the first time in Brentwood history that the Junior Boys Rugby team competed in the provincial playoffs. Despite having more tries than the...

Island Championship on Gillespie Field

On May 18th, one of Brentwood’s rare and special Red and Black days, the Senior Boys Rugby team played the Island Championship game against one of their biggest rivals, St. Michaels.

Resilience is a Virtue

May 25, '17

Last Monday, the Junior Rugby boys left class early to ride down for our game against Oak Bay in Victoria. It would determine whether or not the team will be remembered forever or passed down as just another team in Brentwood history. It turns out we would be the first Junior rugby team in recent Brentwood history to go to provincials. The bus...

An Excellent Exchange

May 24, '17

Waiting out a layover in the Vancouver airport, ten Outdoor Pursuits students filled out a survey from Experiences Canada, but no piece of paper has the ability to encompass the adventure we had just enjoyed. Way back at the beginning of the school year, a group of ten Outdoor Education students from Glebe Collegiate Institute flew to Brentwood...

Development Field Hockey

May 21, '17

In September, for many of us the first term at Brentwood, most of us didn’t have any experience in field hockey. We started off the year learning the fundamentals of the sport; stick handling, passing the ball, etc. Some of us picked up the sport quickly, others, not so much. Nevertheless, the girls were learning and growing. Our first game was at...

Provincial Tennis

May 20, '17

Brentwood’s Junior Tennis team went off to Vancouver last week to participate at the Provincials. Both teams (boys & girls) showed a great performance during these three days. The girls’ team placed second, unfortunately, to Crofton House, which shattered our dream of winning Provincials. The boys placed sixth out of 17 teams which was a great...
