“There is a stigma in Chaminade that prevents us from talking about stigmas. It sounds ridiculous, but that’s the reality of the hypermasculinity in my all boys school. One of the best things about Cham is that it is a brotherhood, a tightly knit community, and a family. But like all families, it has its faults. Since we’re such a tightly knit community of guys, we create a very macho and manly environment, and this causes us to not take value in our mental health. We are desensitized to emotion, and taught to be numb. .
.
.
That being said, hope isn’t lost for our little community. It isn’t that mental health is outlawed in the school for us. Most of the students will feel happy talking about it if talked to individually, and everyone is happy to lend a helping hand. The problem seems to be that each person has the capacity to talk about mental health, but the community itself doesn’t. To remedy this, we need to implement mental health into our daily conversation and maybe in the future, introduce it back into our dialogue as a school community. “ - Vincent Nguyen, Grade 11 for @riseoverrunorg #stopthestigma

Self love is an art I’m still trying to master but some days it feels so out of reach.

“Nine years have passed since the formation of the Stop the Stigma club here at Chaminade. This also marks as the third year that I have been part of the club. It has been clear to see that there is noticeable growth on the support and awareness for the issue of mental health at Chaminade since not only the formation of Stop the Stigma, but also since I joined three years ago as a grade nine student. .
.
Even with this progress, the issue of mental health is still one that seems to be shunned off by Chaminade students. The stigma around talking about mental health is that it shows “weakness” and is “unmasculine”. I believe it is our goal at Stop the Stigma to encourage Chaminade students to be open about their emotions and that it is okay to talk about how they are feeling and not feel the fear of being made fun of for it. With next year being my final year at Chaminade, I hope to continue to encourage Chaminade students to speak to each other on what is bothering them and how they are truly feeling. At the end of the day we are a brotherhood so when one brother goes down, the rest of us should all help to make sure he gets back up better than ever.” - Andrew Camacho, Grade 11

“Well it’s difficult to talk about mental health in general. People are so afraid to get out of their comfort zones to be vulnerable and actually say, “hey I don’t know what’s going on with me. I’m fine physically but mental I really don’t know.”

It’s especially difficult in an all guy school because talking about feelings isn’t seemed as “cool” or “manly” enough.” - Nicholas Bosco, Grade 12

Found a white lace top that doesn’t look like my grandmother’s tablecloth! 😜 #johnathansimkhai #lace #ootd #outfit #outfitpost #outfitoftheday #latergram #newin #whatiwore #summerstyle

Repost of ferrero 🍓 strawberries! I wondered how to pack the most ferrero flavour in these babies, and here's what I came up with: melt a little Nutella and butter in the the dipping chocolate.
Then make a crusting to pile on them once they're dipped: roasted chopped hazelnuts and rice cereal mixed with the dipping mix.
Oh man. It. Was. A. Flavour. Explosion. .
