A Showstopping Run

Congratulations to everyone involved in the Senior School production of "Blue Stockings" by Jessica Swale, which ran from December 12-14, 2018. Set in Cambridge University in 1896, this thought-provoking play follows the fight for a woman's right to graduate at a time when the pursuit of knowledge and education made women seem "unnatural and unmarriageable". Everyone involved did a fantastic job of showcasing the strength and passion of the drama program at SJR.
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.
