    The Power of Vulnerability

    By Rosemary Lefebvre, Grade 12

Four years ago, I was in the same place as 130 of you. Homesick, even though I lived 30 minutes away. I hardly spoke English and I was scared. Scared of coming to a new school where I did not know a single soul except my Grade 12 brother who honestly did not care to hang out with me.

  • Get ready for culture shock!

    By Andrea Schmitt
    Welcome to Stanstead! Or welcome back to Stanstead!
    If you are a day student or a boarding student, welcome! You are back on campus, and Stanstead life is going to become a reality! If this is your first fall on campus or your sixth, the start of the school year is always, let’s say, “interesting,” and it is ambiguous. Ambiguous meaning “being open to more than one interpretation” or “having double meaning.” On the one hand, I am sure you are excited, and on the other hand, you may dread this situation. Your heart and mind are still on vacation, and your body is in this little town in Canada.

  • A young Coach T and Walter Gretzky

    Walter Gretzky- the “Greatest one” in terms of Hockey Dads

    By Matthew Thompson
    Growing up as a goalie in Pickering, Ontario right across the city line from Toronto, my hockey idol outside my family was none other than Wayne Gretzky. I have vivid memories of watching #99 play for the Kings and the Rangers. (The Oilers were a little before my memory kicked in, and the Blues, well, that happened a little too fast.)

    Hockey Spartans Making the Grade During Unique Season

    By Matt Thompson, Varsity Boys Hockey Coach
    In many ways, the beginning of 2021 has started exactly as 2020 ended. Unfortunately, the flip of a calendar was not powerful enough to end the pandemic that has its grip on us.
