A message from Mr Wallace

Dear Parent/Guardian

Like most secondary schools, Dane Court has an annual Summer Sports Day. However, that is where the similarity ends. Our Sports Day actually takes place over one and a half days.
Athletic ‘Field Events’ take place during the morning of the first day, then Athletic ‘Track Events’ and Team Games run throughout the second day.
Although Sports Day is the largest ‘House’ competition of the year, and fiercely contested by all performers, it is also the only event where every student participates and plays their part.

We realise that some students do not enjoy athletics and so each year group has a ‘striking’ team game. Unlike the athletics where the competitions are single gender, the team game is a mixed gender activity. Year 7 play Rounders, Year 8 Stoolball, Year 9 Cricket and Year 10 Softball.
The success of the day is always due to the fantastic response from the students. Students have to organise themselves during Sports Day, making sure their form teams are organised and that they get to events on time. They are given a great deal of freedom during the ‘main’ day and I am never disappointed with their effort and behaviour which is always superb.
The sense of community is immense, with all staff involved in the smooth running of the day. Sports Day is my favourite day of the year because the whole school is taking part in one activity. And, of course, I’m just a little biased when it comes to sport!

All parents are welcome to watch some, or all, of Sports Day. The day is very informal. When you arrive please sign in at the main office. If you are not sure where to go to spectate ask any student/member of staff. We do not provide seating – feel free to bring a rug or folding seat.

The programme is shown below and can be downloaded here. We look forward to seeing many of you on the day.
