Towers of Tabs

Mrs. Carrey's Grade 6 advisory has been busy collecting their can tabs to raise money for Tabs for Wheelchairs. Grade 6 student Matthew brought in a huge number of tabs to add to the donation stock - way to go!

Tabs for Wheelchairs will help fund a specialized wheelchair for Scarlett, a 6-year-old girl from Brandon. Mrs. Carrey's advisory are filling up a big green container - their plan is to fill it by May!
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.
