Exams in the Headlights

May 23, '19

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.

Look around, there is colour everywhere: in nature, in art, in cities, in our homes and in dance! Each year the students of Brentwood suggest possible themes for our annual showcase, The Evening of Dance. This year the winning idea allowed us to 'move in colour'.
