An Evening of Creativity

On Thursday, January 31, 2019, Middle School students put on an amazing 'Music and Arts Evening' in Reimer Gym. In a format that is new for this year, the evening included music from the band, singing and even some dramatic performances from the students. It was a great way to showcase what the students have been working on since the beginning of the school year, and everyone in attendance had a fantastic time.
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.
