  • Don’t Let Comparison Hold You Back

    By Dingyi “Alicia” Wang, Grade 12
    Social comparison is a common behaviour that I believe most of us do, whether we notice it or not. In common words, it is to compare anything about ourselves to others and make judgments based on it.

  • ANTs Part 2: Mind Reading

    By Andrea Schmitt
    We are all familiar with the image of a magician trying to read another person’s mind and we laugh at him and roll our eyes. Yet we try this ourselves more often than we like to admit. How often have you found yourself thinking: “She must think I am stupid!” or “My teacher doesn’t like me,” or “They can surely tell I am nervous…” or “He doesn’t love me anymore, he didn’t even look at me during out conversation.”

  • Trust

    By Evan Gass, Grade 12
    Trust is something vital for us as individuals and as a society. If we never developed a sense of trust with anyone, we would never be where we are today. In fact, many historic events would never have transpired without trust. For example, great empires or even close friendships would never be possible.

  • You Get What You Work For

    By Nicolas Pokora, Grade 12
    692,040. You may hear that and think, wow, that’s a big number. That’s how many hours the average person is alive for. 229,961. That is how many hours the average person sleeps in their lifetime. 462,079 is the number of hours left to pull up your sleeves and get to work to achieve your goals and dreams.

  • It’s Hard Not to Be Yourself

    By Logan Béasse, Grade 11
    During my years in high school, I’ve always felt like there was some mystical force pushing me to follow what’s normal and popular in society.

  • ANTs: Automatic Negative Thoughts

    By Andrea Schmitt
    Have you found yourself waking up and, before you even open your eyes, some of these thoughts crossing your mind? “I should have gotten up earlier!” “Why didn’t I get up right away when the alarm sounded, I am so stupid!” “How could anyone love someone like me?” Or maybe even, “I shouldn’t get upset at this!” By the time you put your first foot on the floor, you already feel anxious, less confident, down and bad about yourself.

  • The Unrealistic Standards of Beauty

    By Victoria Azar, Grade 12
    Seventy percent of girls, when they open their social media or when they look in the mirror, ask themselves, “Am I pretty? Why am I not skinny like that girl? Why does no one say that I am pretty? What is wrong with my body?” All these girls are gorgeous, so why do they ask themselves these questions?

    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.)

  • The Challenges of Personal Development

    By Maximiliano Pedicelli, Grade 11
    Today I would like to talk about personal development and self-responsibility. For a long time, I found myself affected by a lack of motivation and found myself procrastinating off things which I know could improve myself in the future.

    It Starts and Ends with Family

    By Yoan Torello, Grade 11
    I don’t always think about how important my family is, or at least I didn’t. I don’t always have it easy with them. I’m sure we have all gone through family issues, whether it’s a little argument or a considerable issue that has long-term effects. Personally, I haven’t always had it easy with my family over the past couple of years. I’m as guilty as they are, no one was worse than another, but it just made us separate a bit.

  • Here's to You, Bugbee Boys

    By Hayden Pimm, Grade 11
    This past summer, I was contemplating on if I should apply to be a prefect or not. I wasn’t sure I would be able to handle the commitment along with being mature enough to take on such a demanding job of being a student leader.

  • What Is Life Coaching?

    By Andrea Schmitt
    “One life coaching session can change you immediately!”
     
    Well, that would be nice, wouldn’t it? Like a secret pill that clears up your headache in a second or a magic wand that solves all your problems at once. But that’s not how it works.

  • 2020-2021 Varsity Boys Hockey Team

    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. We continue to operate our lives, both inside and outside Stanstead College, with restrictions in place. Both adults and youth have had their lives altered, but we push on and look for better days while ensuring that we still take advantage of every moment to be active and learn.

    Live Life to the Fullest

    By Fernanda Rivas Cansino, Grade 11
    A year ago this Saturday, Level 1 of Jumanji started. We never thought that it would reach this point, where millions of people have been affected, directly and indirectly. 2020 not only taught me to appreciate things and not take anything for granted but to try to live life to the fullest no matter what.
