Here are a couple of updates and pieces of news from my week…
On Wednesday evening I attended a celebration dinner in Fleet Street, London, for the completion of the College’s fundraising campaign. For those of you who don’t know, St John’s raised £50 million in donations a year ahead of schedule and we completed the campaign in our Quincentenary year. Needless to say, it was a lovely meal!
On Friday I completed the Committee mandate meetings. I will be following these up with a meeting at the start of Week 4 to ensure your Committee members are focused on everything they’ve promised to work on!
This evening I have a CUSU Presidents and Externals meeting at Sidney Sussex college. This is where JCRs across Cambridge work together to give each other info on their college and work on cross-college aims and objectives. More info to follow next week!
Tomorrow I’m meeting the Access officer at CUSU, Vicky, to work on some Target Schools initiatives as part of my role on the CUSU part-time executive. We’re also having a JCR open meeting in the bar, tomorrow evening at 6:30pm. Feel free to come along and give all your ideas etc to the JCR!
On Wednesday I have an Environmental Committee meeting and a meeting with the Senior Tutor to discuss practical and academic issues in the running of the college. And on Thursday I have a meeting with Jon, the Ethical Affairs officer, and the Catering department about some events we’d like to put on for you guys
So there you go, that’s how this week looks for me… Hope you all have a fab week despite the rain – enjoy!
