Soaring Toward Higher Learning

Grade 2 students were so fortunate to have Mr. Chris visit on March 14 to share his expertise on flying as it pertained to the Science Unit on Position and Motion. He presented a very engaging session that had all students very actively involved. The students got to see a drone flying around the classroom! Students had the opportunity to learn more about gravity, drag, thrust and lift. It was a wonderful morning and students were all challenged in their learning.
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.
