Running for a Good Cause

On Tuesday, September 25, 2018, all SJR students and staff participated in this year's Terry Fox Run, to raise money for the Terry Fox Foundation. Dressed in their house colours, students ran and walked the length of the race and, despite the rain, had a great time showing their support for this worthy cause. 

Every year, Terry Fox Runs are held in over 9000 communities across Canada with the goal of raising funds for cancer research. Since it began, the Terry Fox Foundation has raised over $700 million for cancer research. To read more, visit
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.
