Spring Term Sport 2019

Apr 06, '19

Spring Break gave notice that Spring term sport was about to begin but while most students were off on holidays, some were still competing or training during this time. The Senior Boys Basketball team finished up their season with a trip to Langley and the BC Boys 2A Provincial Championship. Their youth and inexperience showed at this high level...

Almost, Maine - Letter from the Director

Apr 06, '19

Early on, as a young actor and then young director, I struggled to identify with my own voice. That changed when I saw my first John Cassavetes’ film; they weren’t flashy or big budget thrillers or something you could eat popcorn to. In fact, the films were clunky, clumsy, and technically all over the place but the experience was emotional, raw,...

Charity Work Day 2019

Apr 06, '19

On Saturday, March 30th, nearly every student in the school, unless injured or ill, played a key role in raising funds destined for non-profit organizations in the Cowichan Valley, dedicated to improving the lives of people less fortunate. This annual event is an "all hands on deck" effort, which sent over 380 students to 58 different...

The UBC Physics Olympics

Apr 06, '19

The UBC Physics Olympics was held on Saturday, March 9, 2019, and was a fun and engaging way to not only showcase our own knowledge but to learn from others as well. I choose to think of this event in two stages; stage one was the preparation and stage two was the execution. Stage one was a really immersive experience for those of us who were...

Always Learning - Faculty Pro-D

Apr 06, '19

As the students left for break and again as they returned, teachers were involved in days of professional development that focussed our minds around the future of education and adapting our curriculum and pedagogy for today’s learners. In our first session, we were joined by Kari Marken who took us through a series of exercises to help us better...

February 2019 Athletics Review

Mar 07, '19

February was quite a month for our competitive sports teams. The hockey program finished off a terrific season by playing outstanding hockey during our annual Ross Cup Tournament. They came second in pool play and lost a closely contested semi-final game to the eventual winner from Cowichan. The team showed tremendous improvement over the course...

Photography 101, Old School

Mar 07, '19

Welcome to my world, or as a friend of mine calls it, ‘Old School’. Despite the fact that most of my professional photography work is done using digital equipment with processing done on my office desktop, I still hold my love for analog (film) photography close to my heart. I am ‘Old School’ for sure. Walking through the Camera Arts door and...

Making Use Of The Makerspace

Mar 07, '19

Many schools have created spaces in their buildings for a Makerspace and Brentwood is no exception. The idea of the Makerspace is a place for students to imagine, design and create. This can be related to a school assignment or simply a place to ‘tinker’. In September of 2016, we opened the space used for woodworking and 3D sculpture in the...

Campus Life - Changes I've Seen

Mar 07, '19

As Mrs. Felix and I get closer and closer to retirement, students who know I attended Brentwood have asked me what Brentwood was like when I attended (1974-1977), and what has changed? Well, much has changed, but perhaps not as much as one may think. Some of the facilities changes are obvious - Brentwood's physical plant continues to evolve and...

Character Revealed

Mar 07, '19

The world has an obsession with outcomes, achievement and ranking. How many trophies have we accumulated? Which selective universities have your graduates been admitted to? What famous alumni do you have? While I’m not suggesting that these are unimportant, there is one measurement, however, that trumps all – character. This most precious quality...
