Events & Reunions

Events and Reunions

Throughout the year, SJR hosts a variety of alumni events in Winnipeg and beyond. Join us at one of our upcoming alumni receptions or School gatherings.

Homecoming is the main event when the majority of reunions are held. If Homecoming does not work for your reunion, we are happy to host you on an alternate date.  Please reference our Tips for a Meaningful Reunion document to help get you started with planning your reunion. 
Homecoming 2024 returns with a line-up of in-person events. Dinner on Friday, BBQ, and Golf on Saturday, with soccer, and tours in between. The perfect reunion weekend with plenty of time for alumni to gather at private reunion events on September 20 and 21, 2024.

    Joan Banman Cristo 83

    Alumni Coordinator
St. John’s-Ravenscourt School was founded in 1820 principally to serve the children of the Selkirk settlers. By 1834 there were forty students, evenly split between boys and girls. SJR has inevitably grown and changed over the years since, though its success throughout has been unimpeachable. We have graduated 18 Rhodes scholars, for example, and Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II granted patronage and established a scholarship in her name in 1981. Today the programs are as strong as our reputation. A strong academic program is paired with an equally strong attention to the values of stewardship, ethical leadership, and excellence in all areas of academic, social and athletic life.
