A Dance to Remember

The Royal Winnipeg Ballet gave a special performance to our Junior School students this morning. They began by demonstrating the 'practice portion' of their routine, with their stretches and warm-ups at the barre, followed by some of their repertoire pieces. These included a showcase of classical ballet, character dance and contemporary dance performances, as well as an excerpt from 'Swan Lake', all highlighting the dancers' impressive skills. Thank you to the RWB for spending time at SJR and for the wonderful performance for our students!
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.
