Mock Trial Participation

On Sunday, April 14, 2019, some of our Grade 11 and 12 students had the chance to participate in The Manitoba Bar Association’s Law Day. Our students prepared for three weeks to perform a mock trial of a criminal case with a real judge.

Outside of the courtroom students from across the city saw exhibits from Government, community, and law-related agencies displayed throughout the Law Courts Building and had the change to take tours or sit in on different sessions during the day.
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.
