After two years of campaigning The Dane Court Road Safety Team have been awarded a £4000 grant to spend on ways to improve road safety for our students. In addition, Year 11 students Katie Hatt, Ben Marshall, Tim Norman and Gowri Satish along with Jennifer Powers in year nine have also been successful in joining with a small number of other schools in the area to fight for the construction of a zebra crossing on a very busy part of Broadstairs Road.
We are proud to announce that the grant of £4000 (after much deliberation) has been spent on safety equipment lockers which have been installed in the bicycle sheds and electronic signs which will help to control traffic at the entrance and on the driveways of our school.
Over the years we have been involved in meeting cabinet members debating the best ways to achieve safer roads, our local MP who invited us to the Houses of Parliament for a tour and a discussion in one of the committee rooms, road surveys in which we measured traffic speeds with a speed gun, and general meetings to which members of the public, politicians and representatives of The Twenty is Plenty Campaign were invited.
We very much want to recruit students from Key stage 3 to carry on our work and we look forward to supporting such a team through CAS projects which we will propose when we are in the sixth form at Dane Court.
We are excited to tell you that Dane Court Grammar School will be hosting the Deal-based Railway Swing Band for a marvellous evening of family entertainment on Wednesday 4 March 2015.
At the Kent Schools Games Finals which have been running over the past few weeks Dane Court Grammar School have had conspicuous success representing the Thanet District. At the indoor rowing the year seven girls won gold and the year eight boys claimed bronze medals and in handball the year ten boys also took first place to bring home gold.
The most hotly contested competition proved to be the Indoor Athletics where all county districts ran, threw and jumped with incredible enthusiasm and much skill. The Dane Court year seven boys took third position in their first attempt at the finals but the year eight boys claimed a magnificent team victory to repeat their winning success of last year.
We are offering a varied and wide choice of activities this term.
All abilities welcome unless stated as a "team practice" or "invitation only".
For any further information please see a member of the PE Department.
