People are the Worst!

Apr 13, '18

Those are the four uplifting words I left with the students before they headed off for Spring Break. I can already hear the voice inside your head saying “He did what?!”.  Before we get too far, let me explain. Humans constantly oscillate between being extremely selfish and being incredibly kind. Some examples I shared are below. People are...

Lifelong Skills In Health 10

Apr 13, '18

We believe that it is important to prepare our students for all aspects of their futures, which includes entering the workforce. Additionally, the Brentwood graduation program mandates that students acquire a minimum of 30 hours of work experience between grades 10 and 12. A combination of these reasons is why we introduced two new sessions into...

Nicaragua Service Trip 2018

Apr 13, '18

At the beginning of Spring Break, thirteen Brentwood students and two chaperones stepped out of the Managua airport, bleary-eyed from travelling overnight, into a climate totally different from the temperate rainforest of Vancouver Island. A four-hour van ride took us to Monty’s Beach Lodge, in the coastal community of Jiquilillo, Nicaragua, where...

Careers Day

Mar 09, '18

On Saturday March 3rd we held our annual Careers Day, which, for new parents and perhaps some not so new, is a time when students get to experience a wide range of guest speakers from a variety of fields and backgrounds. Many are alumni and some are parents of current or past students. Some are simply successful local professionals and business...

February Sports Review

Mar 09, '18

February was quite a month for our competitive sports teams. The hockey program finished off perhaps its most impressive season ever by going 8-0 in league play and captured the high school championship. Indeed, our competitive team lost only one game all season (going 15-1 for the year), a thriller in the final of the Ross Cup where they were...

We’d like to congratulate Robbie K, Whittall ‘19 whose photo “Bearly Safe” was submitted in the Canadian Geographic’s 2017 Wildlife Photography competition and selected as the winner for the Youth category in the 2017 Wildlife Photography of...

St. David’s Day

Mar 09, '18

On March 1st, the campus was filled with daffodils and leeks. The Welsh flag was flying high and a red rugby jersey circled the campus. Every March 1st, Mr. Dewi Griffiths, a man of Welsh heritage, brings his cultural celebration to his students and to campus. He is not shy about his pride – instead embracing it with a full heart. Celebrating...

Our student Musical Theatre Company and faculty Creative Team invite you to join us for Crazy for You, the toe-tapping song and dance musical comedy about finding love in the strangest of places and what a community can do when it pulls together. Nineteen of the gems from the Gershwins’ American Song Book have been woven into this wonderful story...

Athletics Review - January 2018

Feb 06, '18

January has been a busy time for our competitive sports teams. The hockey program was very active going undefeated in league play and perhaps more impressively, beating St. George’s School 5-3 for the first time in four years in our annual Showcase event. Mr Patel is very pleased to have the Saville Cup finally back in a Brentwood trophy case!...

Sweep the Sheds

Feb 06, '18

Like many of you, I receive countless “must read” articles that, for the most part, I peruse during intermittent quiet moments. Recently, one passed across my screen that held me for some time.
As I shared with the students at our most recent assembly, to put it kindly, I’m not a strong swimmer; in fact, I sink like a stone. The pinnacle of...
