Players are still reminiscing about the highlights from October's Hold Back the Snow event - an annual Ultimate tournament hosted by SJR.

Players from 31 teams across the city returned to the field on the weekend of October 15, 2022 for the 27th-anniversary tournament held at IJL Ultimate Park.

It was great to watch our Middle and Senior School co-ed Ultimate teams compete in this much-loved event and a special thank you to the many coaches, parents and volunteers involved in making the event such a huge success. Though the temperature was a bit frigid, our hope for holding on to green grass and snowless conditions played in our favour! Congratulations to everyone who participated and who were involved. Can't wait to celebrate again at the 2023 HBTS event.
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.
