Dane Court staff and students got a head start on this year's Sport Relief excitement.
The charity reckon that our area raised more than its fair share of cash in 2013 and invited us to put on a special day of physical fund raisers a full three weeks before the rest of the nation.
The PE department swung into acton organising an impressive range of challenges from staff versus students dodgeball and non-stop badminton to climbing a mountain on our school climbing wall.
Following on from the success of reaching the U13 girls rugby National finals last year, Dane Court now have promising teams in two age categories. With the U13s having moved up to U15 level, they continued their success by becoming Kent champions this week.
Two students from Dane Court Grammar School entered a competition organised by the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation. The competition aims to encourage young people from around the world to express their concern for the environment and, in particular, the endangered species with whom we share our fragile planet through art and poetry. This year children were invite to submit art work or poetry on the theme ‘It’s Our World’ and required schools or individuals to think about the impact that human activity is having on our planet and the many species of endangered animals. The competition, this year, was generously sponsored by Marks and Spencer
Health and Social Care students from Dane Court entertained residents at Yoakley Homes and students at The Royal School for Deaf with their pantomime 'Cinderella'.
The script was written and directed by Year 12 students Rochella Fletcher and Grace Offen. The students prepared and served a tea for the Yoakley residents, including a scrumptious Christmas cake. Allysha Crow and Georgina Jaconelli, who played the part of Fairy Godmothers also made a pass the parcel for the residents. This went down very well as it reminded many of them of their childhood days.
