Trick or Can!

Trick or Can, also known as We Scare Hunger, is an initiative where students first hand out flyers and later pick up non-perishable food items from the Wildwood neighbourhood. This year, we had over 35 students and staff volunteers handing out flyers and picking up cans. Thanks to their hard work, we collected 29 boxes of donation items for Winnipeg Harvest. We are very grateful for a school and neighbourhood community that brings diverse groups of people together in support of a common cause. We are looking forward to continue making these wonderful connections with several more initiatives throughout the year.
Community Service Prefects
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.
