Ping Pong Challenge!

Last week, students in Grade 2 spent time working together to design successful catapaults. Using their creativity, teamwork and innovation, they got to work! Each team had specific supplies and a limited amount of time. When the time was up, three groups had created successful designs which they demonstrated for the class. What a great way to get thinking about design!
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.
