The Spring Term at Brentwood

ImageThis is it. This is what we have all been waiting for: the spring term.

The flowers are out and the leaves on the trees are eagerly pushing through their buds. The smell of freshly cut grass permeates the air and, more and more, the warm sunshine again bakes down on our oceanfront campus. 

It is that time. The time when couches, blankets and beach towels are all carried out to the fields; when hordes of happy teens sprint from their classes to throw a Frisbee, kick a rugby or soccer ball, dance to their music, share a laugh or simply sunbathe. The spring term means that darkness has peeled away, revealing a world that is full of promise. It is during this term when we truly recognize the power of the new friendships and the appreciation for the family that we have all become at Brentwood again this year.

I believe there is nowhere on earth where spring is celebrated with more fervor and joy than at Brentwood College School. Perhaps it is because of the sheer beauty of the natural environment, but our campus simply comes alive; everyone seems to have a skip in their step and a smile on their face. 

One of the advantages of where I live on campus is that I can watch this daily ritual unfold every afternoon from my office and each evening from my kitchen window. It is hard not to be swept up in the sheer exuberance of it all.

The spring term has begun and, once again, all is well with the world.
