Hope you’ve all had a great first week of term and that studying isn’t too hectic so far 🙂 Here’s an update on what I’ve been working on for the JCR over the past few weeks.
We had a fantastic Freshers Week meeting all the first years – thanks to everyone who helped out with running the events, especially our the JCR Committee and our Freshers Reps.
We had a BRILLIANT Hollywood themed Ent on Saturday – thanks to all of you who turned out and Omair for coordinating and planning it. It was great to sell out of tickets and see Johnians of all year groups getting together…!
On Monday I was at a CUSU Council meeting representing you guys. These meetings are open to everyone, so if you’ve got any opinions you want to express or motions you want to propose, feel free to approach me or Claire, your External Officer, or just come along to Council yourself. We passed a motion on booking coaches to take students to the NUS demonstration in London on 21st November. We’re also appointing new representatives to our Elections Committee in 2 weeks time.
Today I’ve been meeting the JCR committee about their mandates for this term. We’re setting targets which we’ll achieve before the end of Michaelmas. My job is to support all the other Officers in reaching these targets, so I’m currently working out ways to move forward ASAP with all of these plans.
I’ll leave it there for now – do get in touch with me (fo236) if you need anything, have any questions, suggestions and so on.
Much John’s love!
