Tuesday 19 July 2016

Welcome to the last Headmaster’s Blog of the year.  We break up for the summer holiday tomorrow, and I am sure many members of staff and students are looking forward to it.  It has once again been a busy year and I wish to thank every member of staff for their commitment and service they have given to the School.  Much has gone on, and we have three exciting years ahead of us, so the next six weeks are well-deserved. 

Last Thursday we saw Sports Day Part 2.  Due to the change in weather on Tuesday we had to abandon Sports Day just as the relay events were taking place and continue it two days later.  The weather on Thursday was much better and so Thursday afternoon the whole school enjoyed the afternoon on the field watching their fellow peers compete for their Houses.  Congratulations to Endeavour House who won Sports Day, and we will hear on Wednesday whether they have won this year’s House Cup.

Last Friday was an important day for MGS: The Founders’ Day Service and Lower School Speech Day.  The weather was on our side which made for a glorious afternoon in the Quad awarding numerous prizes to students who have made significant achievements this year.  Well done again to all prize winners and many thanks to Ms Alexandra Auger, a former student, who was our Guest of Honour for the event.

This week the staff say their goodbyes to colleagues who are leaving the MGS Community.  Nine members of staff are leaving altogether; some retiring and beginning the next phase of their lives elsewhere, some moving to pastures new.  Please have a read of the Summer Newsletter published this week to see who is leaving, but I would like to take this opportunity to thank them for all their years’ service and wish them well in their futures.

Finally I wish to thank all the students for another wonderful year, have a lovely holiday and well-earned rest, and I’ll see you all back here on Monday 5th September.
Thank you.
