Year 8 had a thoroughly enjoyable day on Friday celebrating the work of William Shakespeare. This day has become part of the School year and seeing the English Department dress up in 16th Century costumes to get into the spirit of the day is a great sight! Well done boys and thank you to the staff who put the day together.
This week is a slightly quieter one, but we look forward to a new event on Wednesday for Years 7 and 8. To further embed the House Structure into the workings of the School a science themed House event takes place on Wednesday afternoon where we see boys from Years 7 and 8 take part in a Science Fair in the School Hall which also acts as a House Competition achieving House points that will contribute to the overall House Cup which is awarded at the end of the year. I hope that the boys enjoy themselves and learn something new about science.
Congratulations to Angus Taylor of Year 12 who won 1st prize at last night’s Public Speaking Competition. He made two excellent speeches: one on Donald Trump and one on the EU referendum. Well done Angus. Many thanks also to Oli Oakley of Year 12 who partnered Angus to represent MGS and to Mrs Lewis and Mrs Brooks who supported them both.
Finally, Tom Rowe, Sam Luxton, Freddie Gache, Alex McLean, Louis Ashworth and Jack Brown all from Year 7 were part of the U12 Aylesford Bulls rugby that retained the title Kent Rugby Champions.
The boys have won a number of tournaments this year playing in other counties to keep the competition at a high level, beating London Irish and a number of other County champions along the way. Well done boys.
