"Fair is foul, and foul is fair."

SJR's English Department was instrumental in bringing Macbeth Muet, a play from Montreal-based theatre company La Fille Du Laitier, to the School. The show was performed in partnership with Shakespeare in the Ruins, a Winnipeg-based theatre company that brought the show in for a fall run/tour. Grade 11 students, who studied Macbeth as part of their Grade 10 ELA curriculum, and some Grade 12 students, who will study the play in Senior Drama Class, were in attendance. Grade 11 students will be writing critical reviews of the play for an ELA assignment. 
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.
