Duke of Edinburgh's Award news

The end of the first practice walkPractice walk
A big well done for the Duke of Edinburgh's Award first year students (bronze and silver) who managed to navigate successfully from the St Nicholas at Wade roundabout to the Ursuline College on Friday. They managed well and arrived in high spirits ready to cook their tea and put their tents up.
A lovely start for those novices of camping!

Presentation evening - Thursday 31 March 2011
Huge congratulations to the successful Bronze and Silver participants who received their awards last week. I got the impression that Dane Court is everywhere as there seemed to be someone from school in most youth groups around Thanet. Well Done!

Musicians provide an entertaining welcome

School Day Music WelcomeA dedicated group of musicians has continued the weekly tradition of entertaining students and guests as they arrive at school in the morning.
Started in 2009 by head of music, Mr Henderson, the talented group students and teachers used to play in the entrance hall of the now-demolished West Wing. They can now be heard every Thursday morning in the school's new common space appropriately known as the Heart.

Rugby success

Thursday 10 March 2011 - Dane Court XV vs a Thanet Wanderers XV

Successfully taking on Thanet WanderersYear ten students Courtney, Stuart, Alex and Grant recently became Kent Champions as members of Thanet Wanderers, but this time they were heading up the Dane Court XV in a end of season tussle down at St Peters. The first half ebbed and flowed with both teams playing flowing rugby. Wanderers were strong in the scrum, with Dane Court dominating in the loose. With the final play of the half, Dane Court scored in the corner with Mason Webb flying in under pressure.

With fluid taken on, Dane Court came out in the second half and quickly stepped up through the gears. Votta, Silsbury and Whiteman, turned over any Wanderers ball and got Dane Court straight back on the attack.
