Nepal earthquake appeal

Melamchi Ghyang Secondary School - 26 April 2015The devastation caused by the earthquake in Nepal on Saturday 26 April 2015 has left tens of thousands dead or injured with many more homeless or so frightened that aftershocks will trigger the collapse of more buildings that they sleep in cars and tents in open spaces. Nepal's emergency services are struggling to cope with the size of the disaster and the rest of the world is responding.

Railway Swing Band

DSC 5463 LR CL 250pxThe Railway Swing Band and Dane Court Jazz Band performed together recently and the event was a resounding success. Both bands thrilled the audience with their variety of music and entertaining swing and jazz styles. Two of Dane Court's talented students, Chloe Gaddes and Reuben- James Gilbery are already regular members of the Railway Swing Band and have completed several concerts with them. We look forward to the Railway Swing Band performing again next year at the school.

Engineering Education Scheme

EESTeam2015 250pxFive sixth form students from Dane Court Grammar School completed their submission for the Engineering Education Scheme last Friday. The scheme culminated in a celebration and assessment event held at the University of Kent, Canterbury.

The aim of the scheme is to provide students with an insight into the potential career opportunities available in the engineering industry. Teams work on a real time engineering project set by a local company then have six months to resolve the problem, create a solution, prepare a report and present their ideas to a panel of assessors. Dane Court has been generously supported by Instro Precision Ltd, Broadstairs (Instro) for a number of years by providing a wide variety of challenging tasks and this year was no exception.

The task this year was to create an environment to simulate a typical dust storm that equipment developed by Instro would be subject to in hostile working conditions. If the equipment passes these in house test conditions then it would be sent for official certification with a high degree of certainty that it will pass.
The team developed a variety of solutions and, after some prototyping and discussion with the engineers at Instro, produced a successful outcome that they were able to successfully test to ensure it met industry standards.

Paul Dean, Head of Design Technology said 'This is an outstanding scheme that gives our students a unique opportunity to explore the opportunities presented by potential careers in engineering. This year's team produced an excellent solution to the problem and their presentation was well received by the panel of assessors. As a result the team are likely to receive a Gold CREST award for their efforts. CREST is an industry award scheme that recognises creativity in engineering, science and technology.'

Student Emily Watkins described her experience 'I learned a lot about teamwork as there were occasions where we did not agree on things so would have to talk problems through to arrive at the best possible solution. I also learnt a lot about engineering and what it would be like to have a job in the industry as you have to complete tasks within a deadline'

Tom Jury, Engineering Manager at Instro and chair of the Kent Area of the Institute of Mechanical Engineers added 'Britain is currently lacking in good professional engineers, especially mechanical engineers. Schemes such as EES do not only give huge benefits to the students in introducing them to engineering but also benefit the companies. It was a pleasure to work with the team from Dane Court the students displayed some very good engineering knowledge and implemented a good solution that Instro hopes to adopt as part of their feasibility testing'

Year 13 leavers fancy dress finale

MO1L9712 250pxWith a traditional fancy dress finale our year 13 students completed their time at Dane Court today.

Arriving just before morning break allowed the rest of the school to gather around and marvel at the fantastic costumes.

The year 13s followed the show with a farewell assembly where they were joined by their mentors for fond remeniscing.

Of course, they will return to sit their exams over the next few weeks and we wish them everey succes.

Table tennis Southern Tournament

ttennis march15 250pxThe glorious adventure ended on Saturday when the Dane Court Under 13 Girls Table Tennis team just missed out on winning a place in the National Finals. A 5:45 am start and a 360 mile round trip to the Southern Regional Tournament at Bournemouth saw Dane Court in a group of three schools with only the winner qualifying. After a long wait the first game against the Somerset champions Haygrove School from Bridgewater saw Dane Court come through with a 5-3 victory thanks to Catherine Banks and Tayla Bayley winning both their games with Annabel Cole securing the vital fifth point.
