Mission Christmas Appeal 2017

This year Denton Community College are getting involved in the Mission Christmas Appeal. There are 4 million children who live in poverty across the UK. For these families Christmas is a luxury and they can’t afford it. If we can buy just one extra present that we can give to a disadvantaged local child in Manchester to make their Christmas morning special.

Our school is an official drop off point for Mission Christmas. presents can be handed into reception from now until the final day on the 14th December. Thanks for all your help.

Thank you

Claremont and Wood Park farm trip

On Friday 14th July DCC Catering Students went on a trip to Claremont Farm and Wood park farm on The Wirral.

They started the day at Claremont Farm where owner, Andrew Pimley, talked to the pupils about the produce grown on the farm and the produce sold in the farm shop. They learnt all about food miles, sustainability and seasonal produce.
They had a chance to walk through the fields picking their own fruit which they LOVED!
We then headed to Wood Park farm which is a dairy farm connected to Liverpool University. The Pupils learnt all about a day in the life of a cow and even got to milk a cow!  The highlight was definitely seeing the calves who were just days old.
The trip will be very useful for the pupils who start their year 11 task when they come back in September.
A huge thanks to both farms for being so welcoming and informative.

The University of Manchester Trading Event

Congratulations to our Yr10 team of Business students who attend a Trading Floor event at The University of Manchester in June.  This is the first year Denton Community College have entered the event. The students traded shares and currency, making informed buying decisions after listening to live radio and news updates throughout the event.  Using their business knowledge they managed to turn a £21,000 investment into a £63,000 portfolio over 5 trading periods!  Despite being one team member short they still came 7th out of 25 teams from across Manchester which is a fantastic achievement!

Well done to Maisie, Josh, Thom and Lucie.
