Chilly Adventure

Eleven Senior School students, looking for a unique camping experience or working toward their Duke of Edinburgh award, spent two nights winter camping with Mr. McLeod, Mr. Danowski and Ms. Wicks and two guides from Momenta. Students built quinzhees, cooked outside and met their goal of spending a full 24 hours outdoors out on High Lake, at Falcon Trails resort. 
“We more than survived with thrived!” - Ms. Wicks
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.
