Jack attended and competed in the Kent Amateur Golf Championship on Friday 2 October2020, along with 59 other qualifiers. He was by far the youngest competitor, with only one other exception (a 15-year-old), they were all over 17 years old. A big achievement and credit to him to qualify for this prestigious event at such a young age.
It was not only a tough field of 60 of the best players from across Kent, but the weather conditions were seriously brutal, strong winds and heavy rain are far from perfect golfing conditions! Some players decided to drop out prior to the event and even on the day a few decided to give up during their round. Originally the event was set to be a double round, totalling 36 holes, however this was cut to one round, 18 holes, due to Storm Alex poor weather conditions having flooded the greens (see pic).
Jack started well considering, with 2 bogeys and a birdie. He battled well against the top selected talented players, all of which had lower handicaps than Jack - being off of 4. At just 12 years old, with the least experience and the highest handicap, Jack respectfully placed halfway in the final results table. He showed relentless determination, incredible effort and positive mindset to make the most of the opportunity. With such good qualities and characteristics, Jack is set to succeed in the future and looks forward to competing in many more events, with his aim to continue to reduce his handicap.

Students at Dane Court received some excellent GCSE results this morning.
During the week commencing 20 April 2020 Dane Court staff supported Chatham and Clarendon Grammar School (CCGS) in its truly amazing efforts to provide face shields (visors) for staff working on the frontline in the battle against the coronavirus (COVID-19).
Ellie is one of our incredibly talented year 9 students, who wanted to compose a song to express how much she missed her friends and school life here at Dane Court. As a teacher, it is so heartwarming to receive projects that students have been working on from home.
With most of us confined to our homes and 'normal' routines starting to fade with the passing of each day, mealtimes are one of the few familiar regular events. Mrs Leese, a member of our wonderful Food Technology department, has offered to share some recipes for you to try at home.
Our Food Tech department would love students in years 7 to 10 to share photos of their home cooking to their Google Classrooms. We are so impressed with all that has been shared so far. Keep it up Dane Court.
