Top award for a top team

MO1L4486 250pxPictured is Dane Court Grammar School PE Department who have deservedly been awarded Thanet Sports Awards Secondary School PE Department of the Year.

Head of Department Ian Wallace said, “I would like to think the award is in recognition for the breadth of opportunity we offer our students and the significant success they have as a result. I would like to thank my department colleagues for their enthusiasm, commitment, and professionalism as well as the school staff for their support in all we do and of course our wonderful students who engage so readily in all that we offer’’.

“The past 12 months have seen a continuation of Dane Court's philosophy of instilling technique, understanding and a sense of fun into all that is offered on the curriculum, and we thank the Thanet Sports Awards team for their acknowledgement of this. The Department has maintained its high level of extra-curricular involvement across a large range of sports with increasing success at District, County and National level, thereby ensuring Dane Court's name is well respected on a wider stage.”

Year 10 student Catherine Banks said “I think PE at Dane Court is good as there is a variety of different sports to try out and learn during PE lessons and clubs outside of school. There are also lots of opportunities to play sports for the school and I enjoy taking part in competitions with the support from the department.”
Blake Leahy, also in year 10, appreciates the time and effort the PE department put into arranging fixtures and transporting the Dane Court teams. He was particularly proud to have been a part of the boys rugby team which have reached the finals of the last two of the Kent Cup contests.

Around the world in 90 minutes with Year 7

P1010615 250pxOne hundred and eighty year 7 students at Dane Court Grammar school invited their Parents and teachers to sample a vast array of dishes from around the world. The annual International Food Evening is now in its 21st year and each year the food seems to get more and more exotic. The students selected their countries and practised their dishes in Food Technology lessons, working together in groups. They made displays and leaflets which contained information about life, food and culture in the countries they had chosen. This project is cross curricular and the students were given the challenge of using food to educate the visitors.
The event was supported by local businesses.

Students entertain elderly residents

The students organised the play, sang Carols and made a selection of food for the residents to eat as well as arranging a pass-the-parcel, which was greatly enjoyed. These sixth formers are studying for a Level Three Diploma in Health and Social Care and as part of the course they to learn to work as a team, in preparation for professional life. One elderly resident said “It is so nice of these young people to do this for us. It was great fun, makes a change and we really enjoyed it”.
