Our School Charity Events

Non Sibi Sed Omnibus – Not for oneself but for all

Our school motto (Non Sibi Sed Omnibus) inspires our whole school community to organise and take part in many charity events throughout the year. In the last academic year, students at MGGS raised over £15,000 for local, national, and international causes. Every form group is responsible for organising one charity event during the academic year and each year group supports their own charity, voted for by the students. In the past, we have seen the students dress up, take part in crazy sporting events, hold numerous cake and sweet sales, and have sponsored workouts. Sponsored events are always popular, raising large sums of money and we have parents and friends to thank for their generous support. Similarly, non-uniform days are a big hit as you can imagine. Students have chosen to support local charities such as Demelza House and Slideaway and national charities such as SUDEP, MIND, and Cancer Research UK to name a few.

Our students have chosen to support several key charities for a significant number of years. We have a long-standing partnership with a school in Nepal and we have been supporting them through charity work since 2004. The school regularly participates in the ‘You Can Help’ campaign to support the homeless in Maidstone at Christmas and the Salvation Army Christmas Present Appeal with students bringing in gifts for those less fortunate. Every year our Year 9 students raise over £1,500 for charity by organising and performing their own music concert.
