A wild visit!

The Senior School Green Team presented a $308 donation to Prairie Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre (PWRC) on Tuesday, May 21, 2019.

A PWRC representative, Milène, came to the School and brought two other representatives with her: a barn owl and an American kestrel. Milène shared an abundance of information about the Centre as well as about the birds she brought with her. Both birds were rescued from situations that made them too comfortable around people, which is why it is now unsafe for them to be released back into the wild.

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.
