A Midsummer Night's Dream

"The course of true love never did run smooth" but a play featuring magic, mayhem and romance can be very entertaining (Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream 1.1.134).
This December, the Moffat-Richardson Theatre was transformed into a magical forest for the Senior School's major production performance of A Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare. The combined creative effort of a dedicated cast and crew made the show a great success. Audiences were impressed by the colourful, inventive production design, and by the energy and professionalism of the actors. Congratulations to everyone involved in this fantastic production!
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.
