Fighting Hunger

Last week, Kindergarten students had a special visit from Winnipeg Harvest. Their representatives came to collect the 200 cans of food that the Kindergarten classes have been busy donating over hte past few months. It was a great morning spent learning about how families benefit from Winnipeg Harvest every day. Thanks for all the hard work, Kindergarten!
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.
