Working Together

This week, Grade 6 students took a break from their schedule to spend some time in the Kindergarten classrooms. They worked and read together with Mr. Milani's class and helped the students in Mrs. Briggs' class with laptop work. This was a great experience and a positive way for the Grade 6 classes to share what they know and help mentor the younger students in their classrooms.
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.
