Hitting the Slopes

A group of Senior School students, accompanied by staff members Mr. Landreville, Mrs. Ragot, Mr. Burnell, Ms. Wicks and Mr. Ward, headed to Fernie, B.C. last week for a few days of skiing. This annual trip is always a huge success, and a great way to make the most of the colder weather and snow! Thanks to Ms. Wicks for capturing some great moments during the experience.
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.
