Authors Visit

Author Eric Walters visited SJR and presented some of his work to Grades 3-6 on October 4 and Authors Richard Scrimger and Kevin Sylvester visited with Grades 3-5 and then Grade 6 on October 7. A big thank you to SJR's Junior School Librarian, Ms. Joyce Riddell for her continued hard work in fostering a life-long love of reading in our students. 
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.
