Concours d'art oratoire Provincial Finals were held on Saturday, May 4, 2019. Over 7,000 students participated at the school level and only 160 made it to the Provincial Finals.
Participating students (except Impromptu) choose a topic of interest and prepare a speech which must be committed to memory. They are asked two or three questions related directly to the speech by an impartial questioner, who is not involved in the evaluation of the presentation. Students are judged on vocal expression, coherence of speech, presentation, language, choice of topic and formulation of answers.
Congratulations to our five students who did amazingly well in their respective categories.
Félicitations à :

SJR is proud to be accredited and affiliated with several local, national and international educational organizations.
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.
