Introducing Brennan Sutcliffe

In conversation with members of the Class of 2014.

Brennan Sutcliffe

Brennan Sutcliffe didn’t volunteer a lot of information during his grad transition interview. A man of few words, he summed his plans for the next ten years as, “Work. Go to college to study graphic design. Then work in the gaming or movie industry.” Simple, yet elegant.

He stated his favourite class at BCSS would be a toss-up between art and math.

“I kind of like math more because you are challenged to use your head a bit.”

As his inspirational quote Brennan chose one by Albert Einstein—“Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.”

Brennan commutes from Osoyoos to attend BCSS. says he has been in this district since he was in Grade 2 and definitely prefers the smaller high school to the one in Osoyoos, which he tried for half a year in Grade 11.

He says the smaller school has a more community- minded feel about it.

He lists McDonald’s as an employer—something he says gave him skills in working under pressure and fast thinking.

Brennan said that being at BCSS has helped him come to understand what he’d like to do as a career—computer programming or something that involves computers.

With experience in the IT field, his dad has been teaching him programming so he’s gotten a good taste and knows that he’d like to work toward it as a career. “It fascinates me how the technology has advanced,” said Brennan. “Every bit of it is interesting—to know why or how or what’s happening or what’s happened in the past or might happen in the future.”

He enjoys “modding”—modifying computers to perhaps make them run faster or changing the code in it so that he can understand, as he put it, “what it is thinking”.
