I start this week’s blog by acknowledging a Maidstonian’s efforts in the community. I received news last week that a student of MGS had helped a distressed member of the public who had fallen and hurt themselves. The student in question heard a cry for help and offered assistance – calling an ambulance and remaining with the person until help arrived. The member of the public ended up being fine. It is always pleasing to receive news like this about a Maidstonian, but also to know that there is still a lot of good in the world. Thank you very much.
Last week we saw mixed fortunes with the senior football squads. The 2nd XI squad beat Cornwallis School 11 – 4, but the 3rd XI lost against Oakwood Park School 3 – 1. The 1st XI match against Queen Elizabeth School, Faversham was sadly postponed.
On Saturday, playing Eltham College, we had a better ‘day at the office’ with our rugby squads following last weekend’s disappointing performance. There were mixed results amongst the junior squads, but the two U14 squads won 22 – 5 and 63 – 7. I am also delighted to say that both senior squads led by example, returning to MGS with two more wins. The 2nd XV won 61 – 7, and the 1st XV won 35 – 7. Congratulations to the players.
On Friday this week we are holding our first charity day to acknowledge MacMillan Coffee Morning. Students will be allowed to wear non-uniform, and there will be cakes available in the Hall at break. A letter has already gone out inviting parents to attend. Do come along.
