Resiliency in Lunch Service and Provision

At SJR, students, faculty and staff are proud of the School’s sophisticated dining program, which offers hot lunches to nearly 1,000 people daily. Parents are also keen on the program, as it frees up lunch-packing time at home and guarantees that their child will be able to indulge in a nutritious and well-balanced meal that gives them fuel for the afternoon. 

Since the pandemic began, the Food Services team at SJR has risen to the challenge, changing production and provision to accommodate for the safest practice possible, while striving to keep lunch a special time for all students. 

To learn more about how the Food Services Team at SJR has adapted during the pandemic, read the full article, starting on page 25, in the latest Focus magazine | 2020-2021 Year in Review.
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.
