Newsletter now available!

Just in time for the start of uni, we’ve put together a new issue of the newsletter- the first to be released since our name-change a year ago!

Many thanks to all involved, particularly to Stephanie for putting it together, and to Leighton for his contributions.

The February issue of the JCU Humanists Newsletter can be downloaded, along with all previous issues, from our downloads page.

Kicking off 2013!

Hey guys, for those who are returning this year, hope you’ve had a great uni break. For those who are new to JCU, welcome!

We’ve got a few things coming up over the next couple of weeks. Firstly we have out O-Week Market Day stall on the 20th where we will be handing out fliers and taking sign-ups for our mailing list. If you’re on campus during the day then drop by and say hello, we’d love to meet you.

Our first meeting for the year will be held at 7pm on Monday the 25th in DB23-004, where we will be hosting a film screening. Food and drinks will be provided as usual.

October Monthly Meeting – talk on Refugees

Hi everyone!

Hope you’re all well, and not feeling too overwhelmed by study. Firstly, I’d like to say a big thank you to those who helped us run our stall at the JCU Clubs & Societies day on Thursday.


Our meeting for this month is this coming Monday the 15th, and we are fortunate to have Peter Hanley, the local convener of Amnesty International, as our guest speaker for the night. Peter will be speaking on the topic of refugees’ rights.

As usual, the meeting will be held at 7pm in DB23-004, and pizza will be provided.

Look forward to seeing you all there!

September Monthly Meeting

Hi Humanists!

Our monthly meeting is this Monday night in DB23-004 from 7PM. We will be discussing the question of whether people have a predisposition towards religious belief, and whether some religions are perhaps more harmful to people than others. We’ll be looking at this question particularly with regards to the recent unrest over the film “The Innocence of Muslims”.

As usual, food and drinks will be provided, and we may be heading to the uni club for a few beers afterwards.

Come along and join us for a great night!

Another year, another AGM. Also, trivia!

Hey everyone!

Thank you to all who attended our AGM this past Wednesday. It was good to see such high attendance at this important event for our little group.

A new board was elected unopposed, they are as follows:

President: Joel Tann
Vice-President: Angus Thomsen
General Secretary: Stephanie Waller
Treasurer: Tim Saunders

We also voted in a new constitution to replace our old SoAP one, which had become something of a lost relic of a bygone era.

Our scheduled meeting for the 20th of August has now been cancelled, and instead we will be going as a group to the Riverview Tavern on Tuesday the 21st for drinks and pub trivia night. All are welcome to come along for what should be a really fun social event.

See you there!

AGM and Laser Skirmish

It’s that time of year again…

That’s right, the Annual General Meeting of the JCU Humanists is just around the corner. This coming Wednesday the 8th, at 7PM, in building 23, room 4, we will be meeting to elect a new board, vote on an updated constitution, update our membership list, and basically sort out everything that needs to be sorted out to keep the group running well.

Free food will be provided, so there is actually an incentive to come! We’ll also be heading to the uni club after the meeting for some good talks and cold beers.

We also have a social event planned for the night of Monday the 6th – we will be playing Laser Skirmish at Kingpin starting at 7PM. Cost is $30 per person and that gives you unlimited access to bowling and laser tag all night. If you can let us know either by email or on our Facebook page if you’re planning to go that would be great, just do we have an idea of how many people to expect. Hope to see you there!

Thank you!

Thank you to all who helped out at our O-Week Market Day stall today! Over 150 fliers were handed out and we saw a lot of interest from students, which was great!

Don’t forget, tomorrow night we are having a free screening of Bill Maher’s RELIGULOUS with free pizza too, in DB23-004 starting at 7PM.

Come and join us for a great night!
