Advanced Topics in Math

Feb 26, '20

There are a handful of students at Brentwood with a strong interest in math, or who have been doing math above their own grade level, or both. It would be unfortunate if there were no opportunities for students in either scenario to take higher level math beyond Calculus in Grade 12. Luckily enough, there is a course option out there that is...

Houseparent Mr Ron Neufeld and Assistant Houseparent Ms Sarah Wolinsky, both continue to play instrumental roles in an effort to keep Privett House healthy, strong and proud.

Exams in the Headlights

Once again, it is that time of the year when Brentwood students prepare vigorously for exams (Advanced Placement and otherwise) as they focus on recollecting knowledge from the past.

Guitar Ensemble at the Greater Victoria Performing Arts Festival

Apr 20, '19

The experience of the guitar ensemble at the Greater Victoria Performing Arts Festival on April 17th 2019 was a good one. The time of the bus ride coming back may have been a bit inconvenient considering it was rush hour, but it wasn’t that much of a delay and we were provided with more than enough food on the bus. As for the festival itself,...
