Launching the JCG SCHOOL FEE Raffle...Secure your ticket today!

Funds raised go towards the running costs of the JCG Foundation, supporting JCG and Education in Jersey.

The JCG Foundation is delighted to welcome Calligo as a NISI Corporate Partner. Calligo sponsored the 2016 Calligo JCG Foundation National Computational Thinking Week in November 2016.

Clouds, Bits and Bots fascinate at The JCG Calligo Computational Thinking Week - The JCG Calligo Computational Thinking Week was held at JCG on Monday 7th to Friday 11th November 2016.

‘The main aim of this inaugural ‘Computational Thinking Week’ was to encourage students to take an interest in Computer Science and dispel the perception that it is a subject that is either too difficult or just for a few ‘geeks’ explained Richard Haine, Head of Computing at JCG. ‘We are very grateful to local Cloud Services provider Calligo for sponsoring the week and thank our speaker, Julian Box, CEO, Calligo, who launched the Week and gave a thought provoking talk on the importance of technology for careers both now and in the future. JCG Alumna, Lauren Hopkins, who works in Calligo’s marketing team mentored students throughout the week and was responsible for all social media activity. Students were also inspired by Aongus Fraser from C5 Alliance who discussed using computational thinking in the Tech industry and Ian Goddard, MD Crown Dependencies from Infrasofttech discussedThe Science of Big Data and Future Trends in Technology.’ Students from other schools were invited to this after school discussion.

An action packed timetable and inspirational speakers from local businesses provided students with an insight into a possible career in Tech. Workshops included learning to code, Artifical Intelligence, E-marketing, the future of computing and other computational thinking challenges.

 Julian Box, CEO at Calligo said ‘Calligo are delighted to be sponsoring the Computational Thinking Week at JCG. We are proud to be working with the college and look forward to the many opportunities ahead as we develop our partnership. We feel it is more important than ever to inspire young minds and encourage more girls to take up a technology career as its now a very diverse and exciting industry.’ 

We look forward to working with the Calligo team throughout 2017.

We welcome Equiom Group as a Dominus Corporate Partner.

Thank you for sponsoring the 2016 JCG Youth Music Theatre Production.

We look forward to working closely with Equiom Group throughout 2017.

 

 The JCG Foundation welcomes Praxis IFM as a NISI Corporate Partner. The Praxis IFM team are kindly sponsoring  JCG Foundation Book Buddies initiative.  

The project was conceived at the successful JCG Foundation sponsored Philanthropy event held earlier in 2015 and has been established in conjunction with Jacksons CI Limited, one of our JCG Foundation Corporate Partners.

Book Buddies runs on a weekly basis and is for local children who would benefit from some extra literacy time. The aim is to allow the younger student to choose a book and to then listen as it is read to them before discussing its meaning. This enables the younger student to be immersed in literacy and develop their language and communication skills.  This is in addition to having valuable one to one time with an older student who acts as a role model.

There are currently students from Springfield, Grands Vaux and D’Auvergne primary schools working with sixth form students.  Each Sixth Form student is asked to commit for a whole term to enable a relationship and rapport to be built with the younger student and to ensure consistency.

 

 

 

2016 - The JCG Foundation launches its - Just Giving and Leaving a Legacy Campaigns

We are all familiar with the much-publicised need for the States of Jersey to make further spending cuts. The States of Jersey Education Department does not have an infinite budget but we strongly believe this should not hinder us from remaining at the forefront of education in the Island and this requires a Capital Investment Programme.  Furthermore, we believe that any female student who meets our entrance criteria and who wishes to study at JCG should be able to, irrespective of their financial circumstances.  This requires an even more robust Bursary Programme.

In recent years, we have seen a significant rise in applications for Bursaries. To alleviate some of this need, the JCG Foundation has secured three new Bursaries. However, with your help we can do so much more! Every donation towards our Bursary Fund will help towards providing a Jersey student with a life-changing educational opportunity.  As a member of the JCG Family we hope you will consider investing in our future by contributing to our Gift and Legacy Campaigns.

Local students say Europe has a moral duty to allow 
Syrian refugees to seek asylum within its borders

Students taking part in the seventh instalment of the Hawksford JCG Debate Series have said that Europe has a moral duty to allow Syrian refugees to seek asylum within its borders.

Debate teams from Jersey College for Girls (JCG) and Les Quennevais took to the stage on Wednesday 2nd December to debate the notion that ‘This house believes that Europe has a moral duty to allow Syrian refugees to seek asylum within its borders.’ In an emotion fuelled debate, the winning team managed to convince almost all of the gathered audience to support the proposition for Jersey and its European neighbours to welcome refugees fleeing the civil war in Syria.

Hawksford’s marketing manager Cherith Fothergill attended the debate, and was delighted with the level of enthusiasm displayed from both sides, commenting, ‘The students did a fantastic job in the debate. It was an extremely relevant and thought provoking subject, which was tackled with the maturity and expression it required. Their rhetoric and articulation were incredibly sophisticated and we were all very impressed with their arguments.’

The team for the proposition argued that Europe has a moral duty to protect people who are being forced to flee the brutal Assad regime. They told the audience that over 250,000 Syrians have been killed since the beginning of the civil war in 2011. Referencing Assad’s use of chemical weapons and other acts of terror, the team concluded that it would be morally wrong not to extend support to refugees risking their lives to flee the conflict. The team also used Jersey’s occupation history to illustrate the effects of war on a country, and noted examples of residents seeking refuge in England and other areas of Europe during World War Two.

The team against the proposition argued that the opening of Europe’s borders to Syrian refugees would put extra pressure on housing and public services. The team referenced the current strains on the NHS, homelessness and Europe’s ageing population, to highlight that there are problems that need addressing at home before the West can extend help to refugees. Referencing the tragic events in Paris last month, the team explained that Europe couldn’t risk the possibility of ISIS using the refugee crisis to smuggle terrorists into mainland Europe to carry out further acts of terror. They also noted the benefits that refugees would be entitled to, and questioned how fair this would be for Jersey passport holders, who wouldn’t receive the same treatment in the UK or Europe.

 Maxine Rawlins, chief executive at Hawksford, added, ‘Our aim is to get the students thinking ahead to the future, to ensure they’re always challenging, and hopefully inspiring them to become the devoted politicians of the future. Our positioning statement, thinking beyond tomorrow, is incredibly important to us as it underpins everything we do for our clients. Hopefully this debate will inspire the youngsters to follow this ethos and become more prepared for the challenges of tomorrow.’

The debate teams were made up of students from JCG and Les Quennevais, aged 12 and 13. The teams were mixed to ensure students had the opportunity to work together, and more schools are being invited to take part in future debates.

The Hawksford JCG Debate Series, which was launched at a Hawksford reception event at the House of Commons in October 2012, has been organised in order to encourage public speaking, the voicing of opinions and to create a bridge between today’s leaders and the leaders of tomorrow.

Female Focus - Minerva's Fashionable Fascinator Event

Minerva’s Female Focus network was delighted to invite a select group of successful, independent and influential women to its 'Fashionable Fascinator' event at The Bentley London, on Tuesday 22 September 2015. Among the guests were Jersey College for Girls (‘JCG’) competition winners Rachel Hayden, 18, and Ella Waite, 17.

Prior to the event and inline with one of the business’ core values (to nurture and develop talent from within future generations), Minerva proudly became a Corporate Sponsor of the Jersey College for Girls (‘JCG’) Foundation. Following on from the JCG’s ‘Women of Substance’ event on 6 March 2015, which celebrates International Women’s Day, Minerva launched a competition for year 11 and 12 students entitled ‘Aspirations of a Woman in 21st Century Society’.

The participating students were then required to create and deliver a presentation on ‘Aspirations of a Woman in 21st Century Society’ to a panel of judges at Minerva’s offices. As the competition winners, Rachel and Ella earned themselves a place each at the ‘Fashionable Fascinator’ event, where they were given the opportunity to meet and network with a dynamic group of highly successful businesswomen and entrepreneurs at the top of their professions.

Vaishali Shah, Head of Female Focus, said: “Minerva’s corporate sponsorship of JCG is of personal significance to me as a former student of the College. Talented and ambitious young ladies like Rachel and Ella with their fresh perspective and mind-set can make an enormous contribution to the corporate world. I am sure both Rachel and Ella have a very bright future ahead of them, and I wish them the very best of luck in their endeavours.”
