Grade 11 & 12 Leadership

On September 11 the Grade 11 and 12 leadership classes travelled to Pinawa and spent two nights and three days at the Wilderness Edge Retreat and Conference Centre. This secluded setting was the perfect space for self-reflection and team bonding. After going through various meaningful activities lead by Mrs. Powell, we all got a personalized experience designed to shape us to become future leaders in the years to come. Some of the activities we participated in included river rafting, dyadic encounters, identifying each of our unique core values, and working on challenging ourselves to become better leaders in different scenarios. A large portion of the week was spent reflecting on parts of our lives that we can improve. We also spent time learning to make room for personal growth as part of our Personal Leadership Challenge.We finished the retreat with a night of meaningful conversation and a sing-along of all our favourite songs. We are all extremely excited and committed to making the next two years of high school a great experience for everyone. Thanks to Ms. Powell, the wilderness lodge and all the other teachers for a truly priceless and meaningful 3 days.
Grade 11 students worked hard to plan and organize the Terry Fox Run and the Grade 12 students have been hard at work planning a leadership retreat at Fort Whyte Alive for the Grade 5 students of SJR.

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.
