Who Needs a Mid-term Break?

Nov 07, '18

For most Brentwood students and faculty, that is a rhetorical question. After 10 weeks of school, of course we need a mid-term break. Don’t dare get between me and my afternoon nap/Netflix account/bus to the airport/mainland! For several groups of Brentonians, however, mid-term was about staying together, having fun and pursuing excellence. Mr...

Choosing to Be

Nov 03, '18

“To be, or not to be? That is the question.” At Brentwood, about 20% of the student body chooses to be, and half of that 20% have made their choice in the last 3 months. 100 students here are part of the rowing program, with 50 of us just trying it out for the first time this fall. Coming into the season, I had never been in a rowing shell...

Junior Rowing

Aug 15, '18

Rowing is truly one of the most special programs at Brentwood. These past nine months with the junior program have gone by so quickly, with many amazing memories created while pushing through those last 500 meters of the race, finding out your crew is going to nationals, and the many beautiful mornings we spend out on the water. Having to wake up...

Senior Rowing

Aug 01, '18

The senior rowing program at Brentwood has always been a highly competitive team and this year has been no different. The senior men had a solid base of returning rowers from last season with some newcomers in the mix. The senior women’s team, however, focused on catching novices up in order to fill boats and create a competitive team. Both...

Missing the Cut

Jul 25, '18

At the start of my Grade 10 year, I was told that I would no longer be rowing in the Junior category. Because of my birthdate, I would be rowing for Mr Carr and the Senior Boys. As scary as the new information was, I was eager to be taught by such a legendary coach. I immediately became the “younger brother” of the team. Fetching oars, grabbing...
