Community Service & Trips

Senior School students dedicate countless hours to making a difference in the local community and further afield.

Due to COVID 19, some community service projects have been put on hold for the 2020-2021 academic year.

Typically SJR students volunteer their time mentoring students at a local school, volunteer their time on a service trip to various countries, raise money for local organizations such as CancerCare Manitoba, the Terry Fox Foundation, the Lake Winnipeg Foundation, the Boys and Girls Club, and much, much more!
