Activities

The Old Maidstonian Society holds regular and occasional events. One annual fixture is the Annual Supper (here’s a link to the Annual Supper Page, which gives details). The Supper is normally on the penultimate Friday of March and preceded by the Annual General Meeting (see the Organization Page), both held at the School. A link to the booking form can be found on the right. The Events page and the posts in the events category list others. Also included in the events page and category are School events to which OMs are invited.

The Society awards a number of prizes and grants. See the Awards page for details of these (and in the case of grants, the guidelines and application form). In order to maintain these awards, the Society undertakes fundraising by various means: see the Fundraising page. Members are strongly encouraged to contribute to these charitable funds and thereby support current and recent pupils.

Please let us know if you are organizing a reunion so we can post it here and notify others who might be interested.

The Society runs a mentoring scheme, and OMs are invited to consider becoming mentors to current and recent pupils: see the Mentoring page.

There is an Old Maidstonians rugby team, organised jointly with Maidstone Rugby Club.
Details are available at:

.
In recognition of the link with the club, it has made the head a Vice-President.

OMS AGM and Annual Supper 2017 – 31st March

Posted on January 9th, 2017

Dear Old Maidstonians,

OMS AGM and Annual Supper 2017 – 31st March

The AGM and Annual Supper will be held on Friday 31st March 2017. The AGM will be held from 17:45 to 18:30.
As with last year, the Supper will commence promptly at 19:30, and will conclude by 22:00, although the hall and bar will remain open until 23:00.
Entrance this year will again only be through the main entrance door, where you will be greeted. The bar will be open by 17:30. The cost is £22 per head – unfortunately there was an error in the Winter Newsletter in stating that it was £18. Dress is jacket and tie.

The Committee is pleased to announce that the President for 2017 to 2018 will be Sam Coppard, who was School Captain during the 2011 school year. The installation will take place at the Annual Supper.

Over the past few years the numbers have steadily increased, and we are hoping this year to continue the trend – especially with the installation as President of a recent School Captain which we hope will attract a more active involvement from the recent leavers.

Wives and partners are very welcome to attend. If you wish a table to be reserved then please let me know. We very much hope that you will attend, and look forward to seeing you there. The booking form can be found here in Word
