Action for the Environment

Each year, a group of Grade 5 students hold this position with the aim of making Junior School students and faculty more aware of the importance of the environment and the world around them. We're looking forward to seeing what initiatives they've got planned! Look out for a special feature on the work they do in the upcoming issue of Focus magazine - in mailboxes in March!
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.
