Grade 5 house leaders and Junior School head boy and girl helped spearhead a Winnipeg Harvest collection drive this holiday season. With help from Ms. Wicks and chauffeured by Mr. Jackson-Davis, they delivered 457 lbs of food this week. While they were on the tour, students noticed the bare shelf marked 'baby formula' and decided to use the funds they raised to purchase $250+ worth of baby formula. 

"Winnipeg Harvest is a very fine establishment in which people can be happy and proud of themselves to know that they are helping people who are less fortunate. They have all sorts of wonderful products for all sorts of wonderful people. They go all across Winnipeg and even a little bit outside of Winnipeg. What I admired the most was that we got to see all of the different assortments of food they had there and even to know that we donated some of the items makes me feel proud of myself and Junior School.  Overall, I think the visit to Winnipeg Harvest was a great learning experience and a very genuine way to make people feel nice about themselves." Amy G.

"I felt so happy and joyful after donating the food and to see how every item truly helps Winnipeg Harvest a lot!" - Kate T.
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.
