Ride to Defeat Diabetes for JDRF

Senior school students, SJR staff and one brave Junior School student competed in a relay ride to raise funds for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). Teams of 4 rode for 40 minutes, with each team member pushing themselves to their fitness limits for 10 minutes! The FUNdraiser, organized by Grade 12 student Noah (who lives with T1 diabetes) was a successful event with Senior School students there to cheer on their fellow classmates. Congratulations to Andrei, Jack, Brian and Evan on winning the distance prize and Ms. Stewart, Mrs. Powell, Ms. MacLennan and Mr. Hooper for winning best costume!
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.
