Class of 2020 Leavers’ Reunion – Friday 2 September 2022

Maidstone Grammar School invites the Class of 2020 to a Leavers’ Reunion on Friday 2 September 2022 in the Big Hall at MGS between 7pm and 10pm.

Details of the event will follow in due course but it is the school’s intention to combine what would have been a prom with a prize giving ceremony that you would have attended at the Senior Speech Day in the September of 2020.

The cost of the event will be £28 per person which will include a sit down three-course meal. If you would like to attend please complete the e-form via the attached flyer
Leavers Flyer with Link and/or this link (https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=bVZYQqE_J0ieVgqz5wlUF1K2giWC5M1KjARPgTwRYK9UMjdGQUU2ODJBUVFZOVhSUDYxMTFYRVAwUSQlQCN0PWcu%20).

In order to ensure that the event is successful, it would be really good if you could spread the word and share this opportunity with your fellow 2020 Leavers who have either not yet signed up with the society or with whom we have lost contact.

We must stress that the deadline to sign up for this event is Friday July 15th, to make sure that the School has enough numbers to hold the event. We hope to see many of you there for this Reunion Event.

Warmest Regards,

Sean Scurr on behalf of the Committee
Membership & Mentoring Secretary

MGS Christmas Concert & Carol Service 2021

MGS Christmas Concert & Carol Service
All Saints Church, Maidstone, 7:00 pm Thursday 16th December

All Old Maidstonians and their families and partners are warmly invited to this annual event.

Having been apart for most of the last two years, the festive period is a great chance to reunite and catch up with your fellow OMs, especially those of you who are recent leavers, so why not come along to All Saints Church on Thursday 16th December @ 7pm.

The Committee would like to take this opportunity to wish all members of the Old Maidstonian Society, and your families, a very Merry Xmas and a healthy New Year. We look forward to meeting you at the events in 2022.

Beryl MacCallum nee Poyser

My stepmother, Beryl MacCallum, died peacefully in her sleep last night.
OMs of the 1970s may remember her as the Head’s Secretary at MGS. She and
my father, who had taught at MGS since 1957, retired around the time of
their marriage in 1979.

Anyone from that era interested in attending the funeral could contact me
via my webmaster address, webmaster@oldmaidstonians.org.uk

Malcolm MacCallum

Update: the funeral will be at 14.45 on November 23rd at Vinters Park Crematorium.
No flowers please. Donations to Save the Children.
