The dust is settling. Our 176 new students are easing into their lives at Brentwood with its routines and expectations. They have joined our returning students to make us a school of 458 students; perhaps the largest boarding population in Canada! To top it off, the sun is still shining brightly over our oceanfront campus; life is very good.
Much to my chagrin, life in the admissions world does not allow one to wallow in long periods of self-congratulatory satisfaction. By this I mean that one cannot dwell in the comfy and satisfying euphoria caused by the immense pride felt when gazing upon this vibrant campus full of engaging and talented teenagers. From experience, one is acutely aware of the reality that there is work to be done; it is already time to focus on 2013-2014. But for a few brief days at the beginning of September, one always seems to be living in the ‘next year’. We look to the future in Admissions – we have to.
This year our Admissions team will again be traveling far and wide, letting others know of this amazing school on Vancouver Island. Please visit our website www.brentwood.bc.ca for admissions events held in your part of the world. We look forward to seeing you on the road!
