Congratulations and bad luck must be expressed to the U15 rugby squad. Congratulations to the squad as they reached the semi-final of the Kent Cup beating a number of very good sides on the way. Last Tuesday they played The Judd School in the semi-final but sadly lost 32 – 15. The weather on that day was appalling; both teams played remarkably well considering the conditions. Bad luck boys, but also well done for reaching the semi-final of the competition. Good luck to the same squad for this Thursday as they play The Skinners’ School in the next round of the National Cup.The newly formed Performing Arts Department have a busy few weeks. This Thursday is the date for the Autumn Concert where a number of talented musicians will perform a variety of pieces as soloists, ensembles, full bands, orchestras and choirs. The concert begins at 7pm. Also Wednesday 9th December to Saturday 12th December are the dates for this year’s School Production, Return To The Forbidden Planet. Led once again by Dr Froud, a cast and crew of staff and students will be putting on four glorious nights of the 1950s classic. Please do come along.
Finally, an advanced warning that Thursday 3rd December from 6pm is the MGS Parents’ Association Christmas Fair and Pamper Evening. Following the success of last year’s event, the Parents’ Association is holding a bigger event this year which will include more stalls selling a variety of Christmas gifts, and opportunities to indulge yourself while you shop. The evening will begin at 6pm. Entrance is £3 and for that you will receive a mince pie and glass of mulled wine to enjoy as your browse.
