Our graduates are studying, working and living in every corner of the world.
As they graduate, each student is welcomed into the Alumni Association and encouraged to remain involved in the school and to keep us informed about their latest achievements and life milestones. The school works with members of the Alumni Association to host receptions and 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, to meet with current Grade 11 and 12 students to share their advice on their university experience so far and to volunteer their time and wisdom at our Grade 10 Career Fair. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.

Favourite SJS Memory: In Grade 2, a student and myself 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.
