CCF Thursday Finish Time
Over the last few weeks we have had cadets who have been waiting to be collected by their parents at the school gates after CCF has finished for over half an hour.  Please can parents aim to collect their son/daughter from CCF at the expected finish time, especially now that it is dark.  Cadets (bar NCO's) are due to finish CCF at 5.45. 

Due to mock examinations, Year 11 MTGS pupils are not expected to attend CCF for the next 2 weeks.

School Bus Passes
A gentle reminder that boys should have their bus pass with them at all times when travelling on School transport.  

GCSE and A Level Certificates
Examination certificates are ready for collection at Reception. As they are valuable, you will need to sign for your certificate(s) at the time of collection. Please check them carefully for any errors/omissions. If you find an error, return the certificate to me with an explanation and I will send it back to the board for amendment. 

You must look after your certificate, as the board will no longer issue a replacement, only a statement of results.

You or your representative (with I.D.) may call to Reception at any time between 8.30am and 4pm.

Army Recruit Training Day - Sunday 8th December 2019 at MTBS.
Cadets to meet at MTBS in time for first parade at 08.30. Pick up from MTBS at 16.00 hours.
The aim of the day is to give cadets the opportunity to put into practice their skills learnt on their Thursday evenings and all recruits are expected to attend. The day will be run by the NCO’S under Officer Supervision, and should prove to be an excellent day.  The weather at this time of year can be very cold and it is important that cadets have sufficient warm clothing and a packed lunch and a hot drink.

Charity Appeal - Whitechapel Centre Liverpool

The School Council, in conjunction with the English Department, have decided to support the Whitechapel Centre in Liverpool this term.  In English, a number of year groups have been exploring the topic of homelessness and the importance of charity this term.  As well as a MUFTI day on Friday 13th December, where each boy will be asked for a donation (minimum £2 on the day) for the privilege of wearing their own clothes, the boys are being asked to try to bring in any donations of either new boxer shorts, socks or deodorant which will go in a Christmas package for the homeless men who attend the centre. 

Over the next two weeks any items can be either left in the Lodge, or passed to the boy’s Form Tutor for collection. Thank you once again for your support.
