Our very own school newspaper comes online this month. Students at Dane Court are excited to put their first newspaper into print and are launching the DCGS Chatter. Mainly staffed by students from Year 7, with input from Years 8 and 10, the newspaper has seen a flurry of activity and a great deal of excitement at the team headquarters in the school library. DCGS Chatter gives the students an opportunity to share their school news, information about their community, brag about their successes, impress you with their knowledge and skills, and report on student opinion. Not to mention devising competitions which will give you all a chance to win!
At one of the busiest times of the year for the students in Year 7, and capitalising on their medieval project and banquet preparation, the first DCGS Chatter edition focuses on the medieval times and includes a banquet feature, fashion details and plenty of student humour plus competitions with awesome prizes to be won! So, jump right in and take a look at what they have achieved, and if you want your voice to be heard, come and join the buzz of the Chatter team in the library on Wednesday and Thursday lunchtimes.
Dane Court Grammar School is very sorry to announce the death of Miss Alison Sonnex.
The year 2017-2018 has been a record breaking year for table tennis at Dane Court Grammar School and it is difficult to believe that any other school in the country has enjoyed the same level of success across both genders and within all four Year 7 to 11 age ranges.
On Thursday 8 March 2018 our Rugby Sevens U15 team won the Kent Schools Shield with a squad consisting of: Finlay Lycett, Cameron Beck, James Crompton, Callum Wilshaw, Billy Mchattie, Rhys Lee, Ziggy Lee, Finlay Keyworth, Ryan Kerry and Cameron Escudier. With victory in their sights, Finlay Lycett captained the team to 5 tough wins. The stand out tries came from Finlay Lycett with blistering pace down the wing to score in the corner and the final try came from Callum Wilshaw from a kick down the wing from James Crompton. He secured the ball and with excellent strength, drove to the line. The team displayed a fantastic array of strength and determination which made up for the lost Kent Cup Final at the same place earlier in the year. Once the final whistle had blown, the boys couldn’t contain their excitement and deserved the well fought victory.
