Please welcome Christine Kulai to the administrative staff. Christine will be working in the Accounting Department as our accounts receivable clerk. She has been doing bookkeeping & administrative work for over 17 years and lives in Cobble Hill with her 11 year old son and her husband, the ubiquitous Darcy. She also has a local cupcake business that she runs from home with a friend but spends most of her time driving her son to all of his sporting endeavors; basketball, hockey & golf. Christine is very excited to join the Brentwood community!
Farewell Jane Jackson - From Bud Patel

At the end of this school year, Jane Jackson has decided to retire to begin what she calls, “the non-working stage of my life”. She and her husband, Mark, look forward to spending time traveling and kitesurfing. While in the coming months there will be a number of special events to honour Jane, for now, please join me in congratulating and thanking her for her decades of service to Brentwood.

SCOTT’S SAFETY TIP OF THE WEEK - Regatta

Regatta is soon approaching which means a busy schedule, long hours and for many of us different duties.  If you’re a crew leader, make sure you orientate your new or young workers (student and staff alike):
  • - When and where to be
  • - Whom to report to
  • - Potential hazards
  • - Emergency contacts
If you’re a worker and being asked to do a job that you are not familiar with:
  • - Ask questions
  • - Be aware of your surroundings
  • - Report any unsafe conditions or acts
Lets make this Regatta another success and keep staff, students and guests safety at the top of everyones priority.
