Our graduates are studying, working and living in every corner of the world.
Each graduate is welcomed into the Alumni Association and encouraged to remain involved in the school and keep us informed about their latest life milestones. The Alumni Association hosts events throughout the year to give alumni the opportunity to connect with each other and with St. John's.

Many of our alumni return to the school to say hello to their former teachers, meet with current students, and to volunteer their time and wisdom at our Career Fair. View our alumni volunteer opportunities here.

For more information about how you can get involved within the alumni community or at the school, please contact the Advancement Office at 604 732 4434 or alumni@stjohns.bc.ca.

  • India Coates '18

    India is currently in a Bachelor of Arts and Master of Management Dual Degree Program at the University of British Columbia Sauder School of Business. She is pursuing a career in management. India was heavily involved in public speaking, musicals, Business Club, volleyball, and Student Council during her time at St. John’s.

    Fondest memory
    One of my favourite SJS memories is when a small group of students from different grades competed at an International Public Speaking Competition in Toronto. The trip was chaperoned by Mr. Vodrey and Ms. Chang; it couldn't have been more fun. SJS has always been a place where you can talk to students in other grades, and the teachers who are always so supportive made this trip stellar. SJS builds community through outdoor and educational field trips, which create the foundation to a really unique and wonderful community.

    Hopes for the Alumni Association
    Always stay unique and be yourself because you bring 'you' to the table. No matter where you go, you will always be proud of your accomplishments by simply doing your best. 
  • Claire Corlett '17

    Claire is attending the University of British Columbia and is pursuing a career in TV and film. Her greatest achievement was performing live improvisation at Second City in Chicago. Claire attended St. John’s School from Kindergarten to Grade 12, making her a SJS lifer. While at St. John's, she was Head Prefect on Student Council and participated in Senior Soccer and the school musicals.

    Favourite SJS Memory:
    In Grade 2, a student and I were sent to the front office desk to deliver an envelope. On our way back up the stairs, a mock intruder drill took place. We freaked out and ran up the stairs. As I knocked on another classroom’s door of a teacher I barely knew at the time and who didn’t teach me, she invited us in and we felt safe. Although that’s kind of a funny story, I’ve always felt like this about St. John’s: no matter who you talk to, they’re always friendly, caring, nurturing, and inviting. It’s an incredible atmosphere I wish more kids got to experience.

    Hope for the Alumni Association:
    Since graduating, I’ve visited teachers, students, and classrooms a large amount of times. I hope that the future SJS alumni feel like they can do the same; return back to a place where the people in the school really appreciated them and can’t wait to see what they do next. Graduating high school is such a huge shift in a teenager’s life, and it only gets more exciting and challenging from that point onward. I hope everyone can feel like I do, and that SJS is their second home; always there for them.

    Hope for the alumni association:
