Planning Ahead

On Wednesday, November 7, 2018, SJR hosted the National Universities Fair 2018, open to SJR students and the public for anyone interested in finding out more about the next steps after graduation. With over 40 universities from across Canada in attendance, it was a fantastic opportunity for students to ask questions and discover more about the opportunities ahead. With thanks to our University Advisor, Ms. Kelly Teixeira, for her role in organizing this 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.
