As the sun beat down, water fell and a fish eagle started its morning chorus... We had arrived in Zambia and were enjoying the majesty of Victoria Falls.
Excited students at Dane Court Grammar School are celebrating record-breaking GCSE results with their parents and teachers. All students gained at least five good grades, including English and mathematics.
The Dane Court Grammar School Parents Association's monthly boot fairs usually take place at the school from 6:30am on the second Sunday of each month with breaks over winter and during the summer holiday.
There's no need for stallholders to book, just turn up at 6am. £7 for cars and £10 for vans. The boot fairs open to general public at 6:30am and refreshments are available.
Check our calendar for more details.
On most occasions, we host Thanet Farmers' Market from at 9:30am on the same day as our boot fairs.
On 22 June 2016, 8B and 8N were graced with a visit from their French pen pals. Le Collège Marguerite Duras is located in Montélimar in the south of France. We spent the morning giving them tours around the school and getting to know each other. The pupils talked to each other in various languages and we learned rules and customs from each other's schools such as if their teacher is ill, they do not have a lesson. Also, they are not allowed to be seen or heard using their phones on school grounds, regardless of the times. In the afternoon we played fun games with the help of the P.E and language teachers and then played kickball rounders. After school, some of us joined the French pen pals on a trip to Broadstairs beach. We had a lot of fun running in the sea and playing ball games. One of the French teachers bought us all an ice cream! Sadly we all had to leave but I hope to keep in touch with my pen pal via email as do many others.
