I feel useless,

I feel like I cannot change the world,

Mine being the third.

Fresh News From Environ Soc

Enviro Group-4

By Alice Chambers

It is undeniably true that the environment is a difficult topic to investigate. Whether you live in the rural countryside or the bustling town, the seriousness of the issue is slowly amplifying. Yes, it is easy to neglect these problems by sweeping them under the carpet as another crisis that the government must deal with that could not possibly concern the individual. Who wants to listen to another teacher or politician bore on about the inevitable future that our world must confront?  We have all had enough. It is starting to become tedious. However comforting it would be to ignore our deteriorating world, sadly it is impossible now to close our eyes.

PLS - Jardine-7

By Niamh Hanrahan

Professor Lisa Jardine CBE is an internationally renowned scholar and, fittingly for College’s 160th anniversary Principal’s lecture, an ex CLC girl.

She balances these responsibilities with her role as Chair of the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority. Professor Jardine founded The Centre for Editing Lives and Letters in 2002, which develops archive-based research projects of relevance to the period 1500-1800 and writes and reviews for many major national newspapers and magazines, regularly appearing on arts, history and current affairs programmes for television and radio.

Tell Your Story with the ‘Our Stories’ Project

 ‘If you want to appreciate the beauty of a CLC daisy, you’ve got to examine its roots.’ Freya Granger tells us about the new project with which you can get involved to celebrate the cultural diversity represented at CLC.

If ever asked to describe the CLC community in one, all-encompassing word, I don’t think I would hesitate. ‘Eclectic’ would be my reply, and for good reason. The school term here at CLC represents a union of different cultures and backgrounds from around the world. In a school with so rich a mix of nationalities, have you ever been curious about where your hockey teammate, chem partner, or housemistress comes from? In the chaos and activity that is CLC life, we often forget to appreciate these details – the details that the Our Stories Project aims to bring to light.

Three Men on a Sofa

Three Men on a Sofa

By Sasha Kirienko

As seen in Pegasus Pages (December 2013) and the Gloucestershire Echo (29th January, 2014).

The long awaited clash between a philosopher, a scientist, and an historian took place on a Thursday evening on the 21st November, as organised by the Philosophy Society. Personally, I was very intrigued by the posters up around  College, inviting girls to come and witness “Three Men on a Sofa” debating some of the world’s most difficult and puzzling questions. On the sofa (quite literally), there were three “men” – or rather, two men, namely Mr Stacey and Mr Hoole, and a brave woman who took up the challenging task of opposing two humanities teachers, Mrs Dowdall.
