Dick Whittall's Passing - From Bud Patel

Dear Brentwood:
Late Friday, I was informed of the passing of Dick Whittall. He attended Brentwood’s old campus and was a key driver in reigniting our flame in Mill Bay. I hope to provide more details to you during this week’s assembly. As Brentonians, it is important to remember those that have made it possible for us to enjoy today’s school. Our thoughts are with his family and the Whittall House boys.

Great news! Our Girls Choir has been chosen to receive an award for "Female Voice Choir or Ensemble" by Dr. Kevin Zakresky of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra School of Music.  It is awarded to a high achievement. (It is a financial award of $150). Dr. Zakresky has also recommended the choir for Provincials in Class 103. What a fantastic achievement for our choir girls!

SCOTT’S SAFETY TIP OF THE WEEK - All This Sunshine

Avoid consequences of overexposure to the sun like sunburns, premature aging of the skin, wrinkling, and skin cancer including melanoma, by practicing proper sun protection.

Sunscreen 
  • - Use sunscreen with sun protective factor (SPF) 15 or higher, and both UVA and UVB  protection;
  • - Sunscreen wears off. Put it on again if you stay out in the sun for more than two hours, and after you swim or do things that make you sweat;
  • - Check the sunscreen's expiration date. Sunscreen without an expiration date has a shelf life of no more than three years, but its shelf life is shorter if it has been exposed to high temperatures
Clothing  
  • - Wear clothing to protect exposed skin;
  • - Loose-fitting, long-sleeved shirts and long pants made from tightly woven fabric offer the best protection from the sun's UV rays. A wet T-shirt offers much less UV protection than a dry one. Darker colors may offer more protection than lighter colours;
  • - If wearing this type of clothing isn't practical, at least try to wear a T-shirt or a beach cover-up. Keep in mind that a typical T-shirt has an SPF rating lower than 15, so use other types of protection as well;
  • - Wear a hat with a wide brim to shade the  face, head, ears, and neck. 
Sunglasses 
  • - Sunglasses protect your eyes from UV rays and reduce the risk of cataracts. They also protect the tender skin around your eyes from sun exposure;
  • - Wear sunglasses that wrap around and block as close to 100% of both UVA and UVB rays as possible.
Shade 
  • - Seek shade, especially during midday hours;
  • - You can reduce your risk of skin damage and skin cancer by seeking shade under an umbrella, tree, or other shelter before you need relief from the sun. 
Your best bet to protect your skin is to use sunscreen or  wear protective clothing when you're  outside—even when you're in the shade.
