Principal’s 60th surprise

On Sunday 24th April, members of the JCR, MCR and college staff gathered for a surprise celebration of Sir Nigel Shadbolt’s 60th Birthday. The JCR presented him with a personalised JCFC shirt, followed by a champagne reception and formal hall with a surprise rendition of ‘Happy Birthday To You’ from the choir.

Carol Service

On Sunday, Jesubites filled the darkened chapel clutching candles for the annual carol service. Every space was taken – with many people sitting on cushions – in order to share some Christmas cheer at the beginning of 8th week.

There were many congregational carols, all sung enthusiastically and accompanied by an impressive brass section, including ‘Once in Royal David’s City’, ‘Hark the Herald’ and ‘O Come All Ye Faithful’. The choir sang some beautiful music throughout, from Rachmaninov’s ‘Bogoroditsye Dyevo’ (yes – in Russian!) to ‘For Unto Us a Child is Born’ from Handel’s Messiah to the pretty ‘Cherry Tree Carol’ which has some rather peculiar words. The music was interspersed with readings telling the Christmas Story, read by a fresher, a finalist, a graduate, a fellow and the Principal.

Thank you to everybody who helped make it such a beautiful service.

JCR news 9/6/2013

Hey Jesus,

The last JCR meeting of term will be tomorrow at 7pm. Just two motions, but lots of pizza. See you all there.

The JCR hot tub has been ordered and is arriving at Barts tomorrow afternoon. It will be installed, brought up to the right temperature settings, and ready to go by Wednesday morning. Don’t worry – the JCR committee will be testing it first to make sure it’s working just right.

If you’re going to be in Oxford on Saturday of 8th, make sure you sign up for the Leavers BBQ – it’s a huge celebration for the leavers, but everyone is invited and should be a great event. Sign up using the hall sign up system now.

Massive thanks to Aida and everyone else who helped out at the charities garden party yesterday. I’ve never been able to pass off day time drinking as a good deed before.

Congratulations to everyone who was elected last week to the JCR and Freshers Committees. We’re looking forward to big things.

Finally, a quick reminder that Freshers will need to have checked out of their rooms by Saturday at 10am unless other arrangements have already been made.

Can’t believe we’re almost at the end of the term,
