Full Of Life

Dec 14, '18

The end of the first term is here and we have been able to celebrate an excellent one. Our students have traversed the province - in some case the country - pursuing all manner of academic, artistic and athletic adventures. On campus, we have been equally committed. Since September, we have run Orientation, Leaders 12, the End of Summer Bash, a...

Teachers as learners is the basis for the Student Learning Institute at Brentwood this school year. Sixteen teachers have embarked on a journey of investigating student learning through classroom observations.

A number of teams wrapped up very successful competitive seasons in November. Our Senior Boys’ Soccer team had a thrilling playoff run to end their season.

What a View!

Dec 14, '18

As most of you know, the North of Plaza space (the area north of the Ross Building) has been transformed. The breeze-block building that once housed Privett House, a gymnasium, a dining hall, academic space, art space, and a theatre, is now no more.

Exploring Creative Teaching Spaces

After a blurry-eyed departure time and some seats uncomfortably close to the washroom on the plane, six Brentwood staff spent the better part of four days actively investigating the creative use of teaching space for a potential new academic building at the north end of campus. Backed onto the end of the October break, our intrepid group of...

Time for Reflection

Nov 06, '18

Too often in our uber busy lives, we quickly move from one event to the next without taking sufficient time to reflect. Soaking in our daily experiences is being crowded out by rigorous schedules, searches for appropriate emojis, and Fortnite. Even at Brentwood, we are driven by schedules, bells, and meetings. Saturday, October 22nd, however,...

October Athletics Review

As you may know, things are never dull in the world of Brentwood Athletics. In the first term we place a heavy emphasis on team sport. There is no better way to get to know your peers and the lessons learned from playing on a team last a lifetime. It is easy to see the benefits of working closely together towards specific goals in both practice...

Captain of Yourself

Oct 07, '18

A few weeks back, I shared with our students some thoughts from a book I read over the summer – Sam Walker’s “The Captain Class”. Walker is a NY Times sports reporter who was on a mission to identify the top worldwide sports teams over the past 100 years. While the outcome was sixteen somewhat controversial choices, his research led to what made...

British Columbian schools continue to transition to new curriculum approaches and graduation requirements and Brentwood College School is no exception. I wanted to take this time to inform our community about how we are going to facilitate the numeracy assessment and the final Grade 12 English Provincial Exam. Because our Closing Ceremonies occur...
