To Do List

Orientation To Do List

Coming to campus for the first time can be overwhelming. To help you navigate all you need to do we have created this checklist for you to follow as you prepare for school and once you arrive.

Before Arriving at the School:


  • Complete Informed Consent and Health Forms online through your MySchool account.
  • Review list of what to bring to school in the Handbook found at http://files.brentwood.bc.ca
  • Please ensure your student has flat soled black shoes for their uniform as these are not sold in the school store.
  • Bedding etc. - Visit the campus store online to order bedding if desired. Please note ordering deadlines!
  • Computers - The school is offering two different laptop packages this year one for Mac and one for Windows. Please visit Innovation Website
  • Ordering Phones - Cut-off is August 15th, 2017 - Get on the Brentwood Cell Phone plan with Telus: See Plans and Phones
  • Banking - We strongly encourage new families to set-up their child's banking before arriving on Tuesday, September 5th, 2017. The school will host a vendor fair on Tuesday, September 5th from 9am to 2pm and TD Canada Trust as well as Island Savings will have representatives on campus.

    However, we have found that this can be quite busy and so again we encourage if at all possible to set-up bank accounts prior to arriving. The following banks have branches here in Mill Bay: CIBC, Island Savings, and RBC. All Canadian banks have a presence in the Cowichan Valley.

When you Arrive on Campus:


  • Check in at the marquee tent at fields to receive your Orientation Package and be directed to parking.

  • Check -in with Houseparents
