Working Together

This month, Grade 4 and 5 students have been exploring different activities involving teamwork! They worked together as a group using a giant 'Kin-Ball' and also spent time navigating the hallways of SJR while physically joined together by a rope. These were some great exercises for bettering the students' understanding of collaboration and teamwork, which form a key part of our 'Portrait of an SJR Learner'.

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.
