Tabs for Scarlett

Today Monsieur J-D delivered 195 lbs of drink tabs to help Scarlett get her specialized wheelchair. Scarlett, who hails from Brandon, MB, was born with CHARGE syndrome. In her first 6 years of life she has had multiple procedures and surgeries, seeing 17 specialists, doctors and therapists. Scarlett's many resulting health issues and physical limitations mean that she requires a specialized wheelchair to give her the best chance at independence. We wish Scarlett the best of luck in Grade 1 at her school this fall!

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.
