A Feel-Good Story

May 17, '20

There is little inspiration these days; it’s kind of a bummer. Like you, I’m assuming, I spend most of my time sitting around, and am generally bored.

Yeah, Young Eddie Here!

Apr 14, '20

On the first day of spring break, four tenacious young filmmakers headed off early to Vancouver to attend an award ceremony featuring their prized rap video.

Apr 13, '20

With the declaration of Covid-19 as a pandemic, it was inevitable that the Brentwood campus would close down, putting students, families and staff under stress and our Grade 12s in fear of a year without graduation rituals.

Apr 06, '20

You think online schooling is “too hard.” You think waking up 10 minutes before class, warm and cosy in your blankets, merely reaching to your bedside table to grab your computer, and making your way to class from the comfort of your king size bed, is inconvenient. You think your internet is “too slow” for your...

Eloquent Rex

Feb 20, '20

There is something inexplicably exciting about seeing something in real life that has previously only been seen on TV. It seems to break some sort of space-time continuum.
