Oak Bay High British Parliamentary Pizza Debate

Nov 15, '19

To the casual observer, high school debate is a seemingly random cacophony of bellicose bluster and interruption; however, there are actually about 10 styles of debate that pervade Canadian debate tournaments. On November 12, 14 Brentwood students had the chance to experience the Fuller British Parliamentary style debate, a four vs four...

One Hour Full of Wood

Nov 09, '19

Woodworking is my favourite art. It's perfect to be creative and to just implement your thoughts. The course takes place in the basement floor of the Arts building. Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday afternoon we start the class with the teachers, Mr. Parent and Ms. Ramsey who have thoughts and tricks to build something. Afterward an...

The Jolly Jazzband

As the new year begins, the Brentwood Jazz Band has been working as hard as ever to integrate both returning and new musicians. Taking our instruments and skills into account, Mr Newns, our band instructor, worked hard all summer to prepare songs that would suit our group.

Midterm 2019

Nov 05, '19

For nine weeks in September and October the midterm break is a goal to be pursued, but not quite attained. It is a refuge for the fatigued. A star to every wandering bark. For most of us it is a time to recover, relax, re-create. For others, it is just another opportunity to pursue their passions. Here is a list of the academic, artistic, and...

Brentwood Through Our Lenses

Oct 23, '19

With all of the events and activities at Brentwood, I find that memories often get lost in time. In Brentwood Broadcast we quite literally “broadcast” Brentwood to the world. We share the memories. Since we are a global school, it's often hard to keep in touch with the extended Brentwood family. Broadcasting is a medium in which the students...

Ceramics Gets Started

Oct 18, '19

Pottery has been a big draw for students from 9th grade to 12th alike. Taught at Brentwood for the past twenty-two years by Ms Peggy Elmes, pottery has been and continues to be a passion of hers, one she hopes she can pass on to her students. Just six weeks into term one, students new to the class are learning the fundamentals of pottery, and...

Dancing at Disney

Oct 17, '19

With no dance experience before Brentwood, I was afraid that I wouldn’t be good enough to keep up with the experienced dancer group; however, when I joined the dance program, I soon learned that there was no reason to be scared. Brentwood offers a big dance program with a large range of skill sets with classes from beginners to advanced....

The Quest for the Holy Grail Begins

Oct 16, '19

Each year, Mrs Widenmaier, Mr Newns and Mrs Blake get together to discuss what musical experience they want to bring to the Brentwood stage. They take into account the returning students and select a show they believe that will feature and challenge the skills of the cast. This year the school will get to enjoy the comedy Spamalot, a stage version...
