Project 11

On Wednesday, January 30, Grade 5 students took a trip to Bell MTS Place to be at the Project 11 Wellness Summit that was taking place as part of Bell Let's Talk Day 2019. This was the second year that the event, hosted by the True North Youth Foundation, took place. Its aim was to bring together Project 11 students and teachers from Grades 5 to 8 to celebrate the empowerment and well-being of our youth.

The students heard from special guests including Craig Heisinger, Winnipeg Jets and Manitoba Moose players who were there to speak about topics related to mental wellness. Read more at:
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.
