Iceland Megatour 2016

P1090190 250pxThis term Geographers have been out and about studying a range of topics in the field.
Firstly Year 10 students travelled to the tertiary coast between Reculver & Herne Bay - to investigate the various coastal management techniques for their GCSE coursework. For their IB Internal Assessment the Year 12 Geographers undertook a residential trip to Surrey – in order to investigate the fluvial dynamics of the River Tillingbourne.
Finally, 22 students from Year 11 took part in a residential trip to the country of Iceland.  They were thoroughly immersed in the islands unique physical geography – a land of tectonic and glacial wonders. During the 6 day trip students;
  • wiggled through lava tubes
  • walked down a mid-Atlantic ridge fissure
  • trekked around & behind a range of majestic waterfalls
  • hiked upon a glacier armed with crampons and axes
  • marvelled at columnar basalt formations & black sand beaches
  • travelled to the top of a glacier in an ex-army rocket launcher.
  • observed puffins loaded with fish, returning from the sea  to their nests high in the cliffs
  • enjoyed a boat trip around the icebergs of a glacial lagoon
  • witnessed humpback whales breaching and fluking
  • relaxed in the geo-thermal waters of the Blue Lagoon
It was an awe-inspiring trip which further enhanced the students’ love of Geography and many are keen to visit this fantastic country again.

French school visit

IMG 4423 250pxOn 22 June 2016, 8B and 8N were graced with a visit from their French pen pals. Le Collège Marguerite Duras is located in Montélimar in the south of France. We spent the morning giving them tours around the school and getting to know each other. The pupils talked to each other in various languages and we learned rules and customs from each other's schools such as if their teacher is ill, they do not have a lesson. Also, they are not allowed to be seen or heard using their phones on school grounds, regardless of the times. In the afternoon we played fun games with the help of the P.E and language teachers and then played kickball rounders. After school, some of us joined the French pen pals on a trip to Broadstairs beach. We had a lot of fun running in the sea and playing ball games. One of the French teachers bought us all an ice cream! Sadly we all had to leave but I hope to keep in touch with my pen pal via email as do many others.

Engineering Education Scheme - best in show

ees16 250pxTwo teams of Y12 students from Dane Court Grammar School participated in the Engineering Education Scheme culminating in a celebration and assessment event at the University of Kent last week. The Engineering Education Scheme provides talented Y12 students the chance to explore the opportunities presented by careers in engineering.

The scheme consists of a number of phases which include a company induction day, a scheme induction day, the project, a two day regional workshop at Kent University and a celebration and assessment day. During these phases the team will learn about the task then develop a solution over a period of about six months. The project concludes with a technical report compiled by the team which they present to a panel of practising engineers.

This year one of our teams worked with Instro Precision Ltd, Broadstairs developing a cost effective training device to measure angles of azimuth and elevation. Our other team worked with Integrated Technology Ltd, Ashford developing a data logging device to measure the accuracy of the temperature of a dry heater block.

Both teams presented their work at a celebration and assessment day which showcased the work of fifteen other schools from across the county. The team representing Instro Precision Ltd was thrilled when they were presented with the Frank Manning Award for the best overall performance at the event. All Dane Court students were awarded Gold CREST certificates in recognition of their achievement. CREST is the British Science Association’s flagship programme for young people. it is the only nationally recognised accreditation scheme for project work in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects.

IB Results 2016

IB results 2016Sixth form students at Dane Court Grammar School celebrated as they received the results of their International Baccalaureate (IB) examinations. Headteacher Andrew Fowler said, “We are delighted that our students have excelled, reaching and exceeding their own ambitious targets.

A stylish farewell to year 11

MO1L2199 250pxThe weather threatened to spoil our party, but at the proverbial ‘eleventh hour’ the rain abated and the students were able to process from Broadstairs Road into the school to the cheers of parents and the rest of the school. A fantastic array of beautiful dresses (and precarious, possibly painful heels) and sharp suits greeted the audience as they passed through the balloon arches into the Heart.
