If an archival document belonging to The Martin H. Ainley Archives Centre is cited in the text of a work, a complete reference to the document is also required. The individual elements of the reference will vary according to the format of the archival document. If an archival document belonging to The Martin H. Ainley Archives Centre is reproduced as an illustration or facsimile, the credit line must, at a minimum, include the name of the author or creator (if known), the words ‘The Martin H. Ainley Archives Centreʼ and the reproduction copy number. This credit line must be placed directly below or beside the reproduction. Any alterations to the image, such as cropping or retouching, must be indicated in the credit line by using the words "detail" or "based on". For use on television, in a film, video, or in a slide presentation, a single credit to The Martin H. Ainley Archives Centre in the acknowledgements is acceptable.
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.
