May Athletics Review

May 19, '18

Spring has sprung and the Brentwood fields, courts, and waterfront have been flooded with a full array of sports action though the weather has only just begun to fully cooperate.   On the fields, our boys and girls rugby teams are rounding into form and getting ready to gear up for the provincial championships later this month.  The...

March Sports Review

Apr 13, '18

Championship Season March is normally a quiet time for our students and while there was not too much happening on campus, there was certainly a great deal of activity off it. The first group that deserves some notice is the Senior Boys Basketball team which kicked off March by winning it’s second...

1st Annual Writing Contest

Apr 13, '18

Prose Category Winner: Jaylynn B (Grade 11) My Brother, Painted Red This man is not my brother. He lives in my brother’s house, with fragrant lilac bushes and gnarled hawthorns guarding its exterior. He owns the cattle my brother once owned, and he walks the fields my brother tended. I see him each night, from where my stooped cottage lies...

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...

Our photography studio is always a busy place on arts afternoons and our students produce excellent work. 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...
