Mapping the Campus

This year, with the help of City Forester for the City of Winnipeg and SJR alumna Martha Barwinsky '83, the Senior School Green Team is undertaking a project to identify all of the trees on campus. This week, the team began their project of counting and measuring the trees. What a great initiative!
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.
