Seas the Day!

Nov 21, '19

At Brentwood, Saturdays are usually spent in academic classes, followed by an hour or two of athletic activity, and then free time. Not so, however, for students in Outdoor Pursuits this past weekend! On Friday, as the rest of the school was busily engaged in its arts, the students in ODP loaded our camping and kayaking gear into a truck, and...

Second Term Sports

Nov 20, '19

As winter creeps up on Brentwood students with report cards and the end of our first term, there are many changes going on. As the good weather comes to an end, so too do first term sports. This means an end to practices three times a week with your teammates and friends who you’ve bonded with over the past three months. But with this end comes a...

Liquid Sunshine - Outdoor Pursuits

Nov 06, '19

On a wonderful October day, a group of happy (and a bit crazy) students set out to climb Maple Mountain. It was 1:45 pm when we boarded the bus that would take us to the trail entrance at the base of the mountain. When we got off the bus we were greeted with wonderful October weather - fog rolling over the mountain and a fine misty rain filling...

Another Trip ‘round Salt Spring Island

Sep 26, '19

Outdoor Pursuits is a small program at Brentwood, but in my (admittedly biased), opinion, no other sport comes close to paralleling the adventure and diversity of activities that ODP offers. Early last week, less than three weeks into the first term, ODP launched ourselves into preparations for a camping and sea kayaking trip. The five-day,...

Sunshine is the Best Medicine

May 20, '19

Rivers to paddle, cliffs to climb, and mountains to hike were all on the agenda of the ambitious ODP group this past week. Outdoor Pursuits is a unique Brnetwood sport featuring an array of diverse activities and outdoor survival skills. Particularly with the wave of beautiful sunny weather we have received lately, the past week has been an...

Another River Conquered

Apr 19, '19

Persistent drizzle, chilly temperatures, and foaming rapids did not stop a hardy group of Outdoor Pursuits students from attending the Cowichan Youth Kayaking Festival this past weekend. Mr Norman has been organizing this youth-centered whitewater paddling festival for seven consecutive years, with the goal of developing skills and a passion for...

The Staggering Highlights of Term 2 Sports

Feb 18, '19

As we continue to embark on our journey as students in Brentwood, we often reflect on how fast time is accelerating with each and every moment spent in campus. Within a couple of weeks, students will be approaching their Term 3 sport endeavours after a magnificent Term 2 of sports. In order to make this term in sports transcending and spectacular,...

A Walk In The Woods

Oct 25, '18

On Friday, October 19th, nine students, along with Mr. Norman and Ms. Bell, boarded a bus and set off for the stunning wilderness of the West Coast of Vancouver Island. The Juan de Fuca Marine Trail is a beautiful and challenging route that snakes along the wave-battered coast, and last weekend, the members of the Outdoor Pursuits program had the...

Onto New Heights

Sep 28, '18

Knuckles scraped, chalk-whitened fingertips stretching to grasp the miniscule hand-hold barely protruding from the top of the overhang, the triumphant rock climber scales the last meter, and yells “Take” to their partner far below. Previously, Brentwood students had little opportunity to experience this challenge, and feel the thrill of...

Grade 8 Kayaking

Aug 04, '18

On a wonderful day in June, the Grade 8 Students had the opportunity to go kayaking in and around Mill Bay. We took kayaks, paddles and spray decks. Before any of us were allowed to use the paddles everyone had to pass the “Wet Water Exit” with and without the spray decks. For some, it was the easiest thing in the world, and for others, it was...
