Time To Create Good Habits

Oct 20, '17

Recently during assembly, I shared with our school the remarkable start to the school year. With 180 new students to the senior school plus another 20 Grade 8s, the seamless transition to Brentwood’s rhythm, while not perfect, has been exceptional. Now we’re in the hard part  - Camp Brentwood has expired. This is not to say that the same...

The Seaquarium

Jun 01, '17

For the past couple of months we have been fortunate enough to have the use of a “seaquarium” on loan from a local organization, the World Fisheries Trust, based in Victoria. The self-contained unit houses over 35 species of animals and plants native to our waters. The seawater is chilled and oxygenated to maintain ocean-like conditions. The...

Over the Regatta weekend, we hosted an alumni/parent reception in the lobby of the Bunch Centre. This annual social occasion creates a wonderful space for interaction and frivolity. Over the past two years, we’ve added a tweak that elevates the importance of this event. At 3:30pm on Saturday afternoon we held our 2nd Annual Old Brentonian Awards...
