HM Blog - Tuesday 19 October 2022

Welcome to the last blog of Term 1.  It does not seem we have been at school for seven weeks.  The term has been a good one, and one where we have seen a number of success stories that have been worthy of acknowledging.  Only on Saturday were we able to welcome many parents and visitors on site to enjoy the annual rugby fixture against Cranbrook School.  With it being the last game before the half term we made it more of an event, offering refreshments and conversation after the games.  A huge thank you to the players, staff, parents, and Old Maidstonians who made it an enjoyable morning.

As well as acknowledging the rugby at the weekend, I also wish to thank the performers, staff and parents who supported the Autumn Showcase last week.  It was an evening full of high quality talent with students eager to shine in front of their peers and their families.  Well done to everyone, and thank you to Mrs Brooks, Mrs Edwards and Mr Bourne for hosting.

Today we again open our doors to the wider community and welcome families of prospective students to see the school at work at our Year 6 Open Morning.  Last Friday, at our first open morning, we were incredibly busy, so I am sure today will be no different.  The week of open events culminates on Thursday when we welcome everyone in again at our Year 6 Open Evening.  At that event the entire school will be open to walk around, see the many exhibitions that we put on, as well as hearing from me and our school captain about what life is like at MGS.  As always, the people who sell MGS are the students.  They are a credit to their school as well as to themselves, and are our ambassadors.  Thank you to everyone who will be helping.
