In July 2014 students and staff from across the school joined forces to present High School Musical on Stage!
Created by Disney and based on their own 2006 TV movie; "High School Musical", the theatrical format retains the energy and strong story line (described by the author as a modern adaptation of Romeo and Juliet) of the film version.
Over the last two days, year eight students have been involved in The Thinking Project in which they were asked to think about themselves, their skills and the aspirations for the future. Students were asked to create a presentation using whatever means they wished, to convey their thoughts on what type of person they aimed to be 15 years hence. The task asked students to think independently, creatively and be self reflective. All students worked hard and did an excellent job.
A group of 16 students joined Mr White and for the final time Mrs Opperman on a 16-day adventure into the heart of Namibia. Joined this year by Miss Hodgett, the students explored the stunning desert, finding the elusive desert elephant, not seen by the students on the two previous trips.
As the students sat on top of a windy sand dune at 5:00am you could see their hearts warming to this very special continent and what it has to offer. As always the run down after the hard climb was loved by all, with Martin and Sally making the most of the opportunity to tumble their way down over the soft sand. From there they moved north to the Skeleton Coast, via Mrs Opperman's family farm and a great meal of Springbok pie.
Dane Court Grammar School is absolutely delighted with their International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma results, received this week. 92% of students passed the Diploma and, across the whole year group, the average point score was 33 – equating to the equivalent of 3 A level A* grades each.
Annie Hale, Head of Sixth Form, said "This was our first IB cohort with the whole year group studying either the IB Diploma or the IB Careers-related Certificate. They have performed quite brilliantly. The IB is the best educational offer in the world and is far more coherent and worthwhile than simply taking three A levels. The IB is also regarded by many as being more challenging than A levels – and our superb results prove that Thanet students not only have the sticking power, but also the talent, to compete against the rest of the world and come out on top."
There are over 100 sixth form students taking science subjects at Dane Court this year. They all took part in the Group 4 Project, an activity designed to provide them with an opportunity to develop their teamwork skills and explore a scientific topic in some depth.
Teams of students work on a research style project then create presentations of their work culminating in a Science Fair at the end of the week.
This week in the year 12 Japanese ab initio class we have focused on certain aspects of Japanese culture. Two things we looked at were the traditional Japanese clothing, Kimono, and the sacred festival of Tanabata, the star festival.
