Week 3 Sports Reports


Good weekend for netballers! The mixed team won 24-2 against Homerton & Peterhouse, and the Ladies 2s won 17-14 vs. Selwyn. 

Ultimate Frisbee

Lining up with a squad half the size of the opposition, this week’s game 
promised to be challenging. In the end the cohesion of our 5 man team 
was too much for Penguins and John’s came out victorious with 10 points 
to 5.


In a very tough match, John’s IIIs managed to come out 6-1 victors against Jesus IIIs in the semi-final of the Vase. It was an end to end first half, but we capitalised on a great penalty save from Kemper to score and lead 2-1 at half time, we switched up a gear in the second half and our quality showed. Goals from Javier, Adil, Roberto, Liam, Nasser and Amine put us into the final. If anyone is interested in playing for us please contact Ryan Walker (rgw39).

Homelessness and Mental Health panel

Homelessness and mental health are both very important issues which have rightly received a lot of media attention – but there is less understanding of the complex links between them. According to Homeless Link, in 2014, 80% of homeless people in England reported that they had mental health issues, with 45% having been diagnosed with a mental health condition.

Cambridge Homeless Outreach Programme and Student Minds Cambridge are co-hosting a panel event on homelessness and mental health on Monday 4th February, 7-8.30pm in the Lightfoot Room, Old Divinity School. With speakers from Mind, Cambridge Street and Mental Health Outreach Team, the Dual Diagnosis Team and Victoria Project, this will be an informative event aimed at raising awareness of the intersection between homelessness and mental health, how these issues can be tackled in an integrated in a complex way, and what students can do if they or someone they know is experiencing homelessness and/or mental health problems. We hope to see you there – check out our Facebook event to let us know if you’re coming!

Education Partnerships Africa

We Invest in Schools. And You.

Education Partnerships Africa is recruiting committed students to spend 10 weeks in East Africa investing time and money in one of our partner schools. Living and working in a rural community, our volunteers develop essential transferable skills whilst experiencing vibrant East African culture.

Working in teams of 2 or 3, volunteers collaborate with their school’s various stakeholders to improve the quality of education offered. Focusing on the sustainability of their interventions, they invest in new educational resources, small infrastructure projects and schemes to improve students’ health and welfare. Whilst receiving specialist training and support from the Central Charity, EPAfrica’s volunteers are given the autonomy to decide how to invest their funds, based on their school’s specific needs.

EPAfrica is continually evolving. We are driven by critical reflection and hope volunteers stay involved after their project is over, feeding their experience and insight back into the next year’s cycle to improve our programme further.

Internally, EPAfrica volunteers have access to a wide and diverse alumni network, which provides informal careers advice as well as a formal mentoring scheme. We have alumni working in a diverse range of NGOs, as well as civil servants working for the Department for International Development and academics working on development-related issues.

Deadline: 27th January
