Keble College JCR


Weekly meeting trial

At the meeting, last Sunday, the JCR voted to trial weekly meetings for the remainder of this term.keble

That means there will be meetings on Sundays of 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th week.

The reasons for this was to make JCR meetings more of a habit and also to cut down on overly long meetings.

This is Katie. She only smiles when she gets sent motions

This does mean that Katie will be expecting motions regularly so do feel free to send them in whenever to

If we do want to make this a permanent change, this will be a constitutional change and we will vote on it in 8th week.



Bring your kids to work

This Sunday we have our second JCR meeting of term. Seeing as the family dinner in Fresher’s week didn’t go exactly to plan, we thought it would be nice to get college families to eat together in hall on Sunday and then introduce their children to the JCR by attending the meeting (promised to be shorter than last time).

As well as this we have the first of Jack Field’s bedtime stories, the perfect way to end a JCR meeting.

A great storyteller, Jack Field still remains savvy enough to use his Discount Card

Both these events are obviously optional, but we thought it would be a nice break as we hit the halfway point of term.

Also don’t forget to submit motions for the meeting to Katie (, the deadline is on Thursday at midnight.
