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.
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.
