A warm farewell to year 11

MO1L5229 250pxToday Dane Court celebrated Year 11 Red Carpet Day.
We were lucky to have fabulous weather for the students' parade, although the students may well have appreciated some air conditioning!

All agreed that they 'scrubbed up well' in sharp suits and beautiful dresses and the traditional procession up the  red carpet was supported by many parents and friends, as well as the other students during break time.

The leavers' assembly was a real celebration of five years of friendship and shared experiences. Students from all the houses enjoyed presentations, speeches (and poems!)  from their mentors past and present, and there were appearances of all the students in their Year 7 incarnations, courtesy of our photo archives. The event was a real testimony to their camaraderie and support for each other and also to the genuine fondness that their mentors felt for them. And this year they had organised a yearbook that was distributed after the assembly - well done to Evan for organising this first!

They have been a terrific Year 11, a yeargroup with huge promise and character, and we look forward to welcoming them into our Sixth Form in September. In the meantime, a long and well-deserved  summer holiday awaits!

Spanish Exchange to Madrid 2016-2017

Madrid 250pxThe Spanish exchange was a seven day trip to a town on the outskirts of Madrid called Las Rozas. Fortunately for us, the weather was lovely and the sun set quite late so the days there were longer, meaning we had lots of time to do things that tourists do best! The host families were amazing and we all would do the trip again if given the chance.

Dane Court turns 60

IMG 0686 250pxTo mark the beginning of Dane Court Grammar School’s diamond jubilee celebrations, two former students in 1957 and 1958, Michael Dodsworth and Eric Davies, were invited back on 2 May 2017, to reminisce about their experiences and to see how the school has progressed.

Victory for Labour at Dane Court

P1020547 250pxThe people have spoken – at Dane Court Grammar School, at least. Students stood as candidates for election in each of the school’s six houses. A week of hustings at lunchtime was followed by the vote, which gave a resounding victory for Labour.

Engineering Education Scheme 2017

ees17a 250pxFrom October 2016 right through to today’s celebration and assessment event at the University of Kent Canterbury two teams of IB students have been working with local engineering companies to develop solutions to real-world issues.
They were taking part in the Engineering Education Scheme which brings together enthusiastic students and practicing engineers in a way that encourages problem-solving, team-working and project management. The Scheme consists of several phases, each designed to develop the students’ understanding of the engineer’s role in industry and commerce.
For the 2016-2017 season, Dane Court formed “Team Hilger” and “Team Instro”.
Team Hilger worked with Hilger Crystals with the aim of developing a more efficient process for managing the results of their quality assurance test data.
Team Instro took on a challenge set by Instro Precision. This involved making a marketing demonstrator to showcase one of their surveillance platforms.
Both teams worked with company engineers on the two-day workshop at the University of Kent Canterbury and returned to the venue for the final celebration and assessment day.
Team Hilger said the taking part in the scheme was “a great insight into the world of business and a marvellous opportunity to develop some completely new skills.”

Election Question Time - politicians feel the heat

MO1L5068 250pxDane Court Grammar School students experienced the hub-bub and tension of the general election in school on Friday 28 May. Hosted by the school, it was the first hustings event in South Thanet, owing to the Manchester bombing. Parliamentary candidates of all the major parties attended: Craig Mackinlay (Conservative), Raushan Ara (Labour), Jordan Williams (Liberal Democrat), Trevor Roper (Green) and Stuart Piper (UKIP). Parliamentary candidates hoping to be MP for South Thanet joined student candidates for a lively debate in front of an audience of 320 students and staff.
