Concours d'art Oratoire 2023
The Concours d’art Oratoire is a French public-speaking competition, which has become an annual event for many French language students across Canada. The competition is open to students from Grades 3 - 12 and includes the categories of Early Immersion, Late Immersion, French: Communication and Culture, French: Communication and Culture Extended, and Français. Each year, we organize a Concours d’art Oratoire at the school level and the first-place winner in each category advances to the Provincial Finals.
18 SJR students participated at the school level of the Concours and at the Provincial Finals, which were held on Saturday, May 6, 2023, at the Université de Saint-Boniface, 10 students represented Middle and Senior School.
Congratulations to the students who placed in the Provincial Finals.
SJR is proud to be accredited and affiliated with several local, national and international educational organizations.
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.
