Between the 22nd and 24th of June, millions of people across the country will be getting together with their friends, neighbours and communities to share food and celebrate all that we have in common. The Great Get Together is in memory of Jo Cox MP who was killed in June 2016. Jo lived her life according to the belief that we have more in common than that which divides us. This date marks what would have been Jo’s 44th birthday.
We recognise the importance of bringing our communities together and for the second year we will be hosting our own Great Get Together at Joseph Chamberlain College. Friday 22nd June is an opportunity for our staff, students and their families to meet, discuss and bring along a picnic to share.
The event will open at 5.30pm in the canteen, quad and garden (weather permitting).
The Great Get Together will also see the Student Council Presidential candidates for 2018-19 deliver their campaign speeches under the theme “More in Common”. These hustings* will end a week of campaigning and are the final event in the candidates’ bid to be democratically elected by the student body. We encourage friends, families and teachers to come and support these future leaders!
*hustings: a meeting at which candidates in an election address potential voters.

All of us at Joseph Chamberlain College hope that everyone will take up this opportunity to celebrate our core values and the things that we have in common.
