Bringing Team Spirit

The U13 boys basketball team had a great time representing our school at the CAIS Boys Basketball Tournament last week, hosted by Strathcona-Tweedsmuir School in Okotoks, AB. They enjoyed some successful wins and played with great energy and sportsmanship throughout, before finishing with a playoff loss to Holy Trinity School. Congratulations to everyone involved, and a special shout-out to player Adam, who received the prestigious Jeff Tricket Memorial Award for Sportsmanship.
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.
