Junior SU takes place on Wednesdays at lunchtime 12.25 to 1.00pm in F17 for any pupil in Year 8, 9 or 10. We have had great attendance this year, on average we have forty pupils attending. Each week we meet together to have our lunch and usually some crisps or biscuits. No two weeks are the same. Sometimes we have a quiz, video or a praise time and usually we have a visiting speaker.

We are very grateful to the number of different speakers who give up their time to come into CHGS. This year, these have included: Colin Jenkins- Seaman’s Christian Friend Society, Adam Campbell and Joanne McCullough- Green Pastures, Rachel Sheppard- SU, Chris Wilson, Steve McGall, Gavin Lowry- Firefighters for Christ, Darren Bridges, and Matthew Boyd. We have enjoyed having our present sixth form pupils coming to Junior SU to lead- Daniel Bestek, Jamie Willighan and Johnny Hill, Rebecca Long, Hayley Sloan, Jordan Scott, Rachel Thompson, Natasha Corscadden and Hannah Cummings. We have also welcomed back past pupils Leah Wright and Stephen Carruthers.

The Junior Scripture Union Weekend was held at Woodhall Residential Centre, Kilrea on 2nd-4th May 2014. Thirty pupils from Years 8-10 had a fantastic weekend and were accompanied by Mr Shannon, Dr Snowden, Miss Martin and Mrs Bradley. Our guest speaker for the weekend was Darren Bridges from Ballymena. Everyone enjoyed Darren’s excellent talks on the subject of 'Being Different'.

On Saturday afternoon, the pupils took part in outdoor activities ran by the Woodhall staff- these included high ropes, leap of faith, zip line and orienteering. These were a big success and everyone had a fabulous afternoon. The centre itself was also fantastic- the food, the rooms, the facilities and grounds were all excellent and the teachers even managed to get some sleep! We also had games and ice breakers, a DVD night and a visit to Mullins ice cream shop in Kilrea. The pupils behaved brilliantly and were a credit to Cambridge House GS.

Everyone is very welcome to come along to Junior SU. If you would like to make new friends and enjoy some ‘craic’ we’ll see you there.
