Grade 3 students enjoyed the opportunity to be leaders in a fitness game called Fitness Skillastic in Ms. Wicks' Phys.Ed class. Groups of five students worked as a team, taking turns leading their teammates in an exercise to make their way around the board. Physical activities are great opportunities to give our students a chance to develop leadership skills and to learn the importance of living an active and healthy life.
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.
