If the Shoe Fits

Nov 18, '17

Over the course of the month of October, the artists in Drawing and Painting worked on a project where we had to draw a shoe of our choice. This may sound as simple as tying your laces, but it most certainly was not. We had to incorporate shadows, shades, and every little detail we could think of into this piece. The project was also entirely in...

Karaoke in the Kaf

Nov 07, '17

It was a typical Thursday evening; Brentwood students and staff strolled into Crooks Hall, expecting another delicious meal. Except … it wasn’t a typical Thursday. Of course, the meal was fantastic, but on the far side of the building was a stage and a computer filled with songs for karaoke. Led by Ravi R, Rogers ‘18, & John E, Rogers ‘18, the SAC...

Everything is Debatable

Oct 30, '17

Early last Saturday morning, way before most Brentwood students would normally be stirring, 20 members of the Brentwood debate team boarded the school bus for the first debate tournament of the season. We were headed for the University of Victoria. This was a tournament specifically geared toward those debaters who have little or no experience at...

The Art of Potting

Oct 27, '17

Potting is a messy art, but something magical happens when I set foot into Mrs. Elmes’ pottery studio. It’s like I become a human magnet for all stray particles of clay looking to see the wider world. And no matter how hard I try to walk out clean, I always manage to take some home with me: little smears that I discover during dinner on my pants,...

Robotics, Where Steel Flies

Oct 24, '17

The Brentwood Robotics Club is one of the smaller arts at the school, but we’re just as busy. Tucked under the stairs in the Centre for Art and Humanities building, we craft bots that could either lift you off the ground or give your Audi R8 a run for its money. Mr Doehler is the perfect teacher to have for this program as he designs unique...

In the first month of school everyone in woodworking has learned how to use all of the tools and the safety procedures for building our first project, a chair. Mr. Hunwick has shown us safety protocol by video and he is letting all students use the machines including the bandsaw and drillpress. "It was the best safety course I've ever taken. I...
