Oliver angles for victory

IMG 3960 250pxYear 8 student Oliver Hampton-Saint won Gold for England in the recent Junior Sea Shore Angling Home Nations competition in County Wexford, Ireland beating teams from Ireland, Wales and Scotland. Oliver is the youngest member of the six stong England team with other team members being aged 16-17years.

Oliver tells us the secrets of the team's success:

ollie rod 250px‘On the first day we had a really early start, however with all my adrenaline I was wide awake. We drove to our ferry which took us to the beautiful coast of County Wexford. We swiftly arrived at our hotel where I met with all the other England team members. On day one we headed out to our practise venues where we caught piles of flounders and baby eels, this was part of our game plan due to our “spies”. On day two we thought we had it covered in the strategic side of things so when the competition started we were ‘smashing the comp’ however the Scots started catching bigger fish and began to mount a challenge. That is how the rest of the competition went on. When the final day came to an end there was no more we can do...
On day one we were joint 1st, so that meant the next day we needed to work extra hard to beat the Scottish. But as the day went on all the teams had started copying our tactics as we were being really successful. Fortunately we were far enough ahead and I was delighted when we won GOLD for all our hard work; beating the Scottish, Welsh and Irish was really satisfying !!!!’

Year 7 activities week 2015

IMG 3472 250pxYear 7 activities week was a mix of business studies, languages and Food Tech. Our main aim at the end of the project was to be able to serve food from France, Germany or Spain in the language of that country in our cafés.

Our languages were decided beforehand, therefore the foods we made in food tech were from the country where the language was spoken. For example we made pain au chocolat as one of the French dishes, paella in Spanish and apfelstrudel in German.

Group 4 science fair 2015

Group4 2015 250pxMore than 120 year 12 students taking science subjects at Dane Court this year. All of them were busy last week carrying out research projects and creating presentations of their work for an impressive Science Fair on Friday. They were given a general theme and asked to define their own research topic within this. This year’s theme was “Energy” which gave rise to some brilliantly diverse projects; groups worked on topics as varied as the energy involved in lightning, the energy of chemical reactions and even how living cells use sugar to provide energy. The week aims to mirror how scientists work in the “real world” as members of a team and gives the students the opportunity see how their particular scientific skills can be used alongside others.

French trip to Le Château du Broutel, Rue

Tour Eiffel 250pxFriday morning, an early start for all, yet one that would be well rewarded with an ensuing week filled with amazing activities, field trips and enjoyment throughout our stay.

Walk in aid of wildlife charity

IMG 4833 250pxOn an overcast day 14 adventurers set off on a coast to coast walk of Kent from St Margarets at Cliffe to Whitstable. The walk took in 29.5 miles of the Kent countryside and raised £500 for the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation. Our favourite Olympian Chris Cook also and joined us and was impressed by the excellent efforts shown by Erin, Lucy, Molly, Martin, Dan, Matt, Lucy, Charlie, Imogen, Ellie and James. Well done to all who took part.
