Students had the opportunity to take part in an engaging and rewarding trip to Barcelona.
40 students from Year 9 and 10 headed to the Catalan Capital and the surrounding areas and had a fantastic educational experience that enriched their understanding of Geography. The group were wonderful throughout, and the trip broadened their understanding of many key topics in the course.
During their time in Catalunya, the group visited the serene Montserrat mountains, explored the beaches of the Delta del Ebro, investigated the coastline of Salou, and engaged in sightseeing across central Barcelona.
On Friday 15th November 2019 students and staff are encouraged to come to school wearing something yellow, this could be a T-shirt or a top over their shirt, a tie or another item of Yellow clothing with your uniform. In addition to this, we are asking for a £1 donation that will be given to Children in Need.
BBC Children in Need is the BBC’s UK charity. Since 1980 it has raised over £1 billion for disadvantaged children and young people in the UK.
The school will also celebrate the event and have further fundraising opportunities by involving ourselves with “Move For Children in Need”. Students and Staff will be in the schoolyard engaging with a flash mob-style fitness event led by Mr Day.
For every person that participates Denton Community College will make a donation! The more the merrier.
For every person wearing yellow Mr Day will donate a pound!Let’s raise as much as we can
LEP Sports Leaders Training
On Friday 18th October 2019 some of our year 9 Sports Leadership Academy students delivered a Sports Leaders Training afternoon to year 5 students from 5 of our LEP Primary Schools. They delivered activities to help develop their team-building skills and leadership qualities, alongside helping them to plan, set-up and deliver their own activities/games. The year 5 students had a great afternoon getting to know each other and having lots of fun! A special thanks to Ruby, Chloe, Ruby, Ria, Andrew, Olivia and Isabelle for planning and delivering this afternoon! The Year 5 students will now go on to deliver sports clubs to younger students at break time and lunch in their Primary school.
To celebrate 20 years of supporting school breakfast clubs, Kellogg’s has awarded the college £1,000 to enhance the club and help feed our young people in the morning.
The college was selected to receive this boost as Kellogg’s announce they are to double their investment in breakfast clubs in 2019 as more and more schools struggle to find the budget to fund this service for their pupils.
Breakfast clubs help with everything from attendance and attainment to alleviating hunger and providing pre-school care. 68 per cent of teachers believe pupils would struggle to concentrate in class without their breakfast club, according to Kellogg’s research.
Mrs Duffy ( Head of Community) said: “We are so grateful to receive this generous donation. We have since been able to purchase equipment, cereal, milk for our club.
These resources will help us to provide our breakfast club services for our young people and help their families thanks to the support from Kellogg’s.”
Kate Prince, Corporate Social Responsibility Manager, at Kellogg’s, said “We’re proud to have spent 20 years supporting so many schools across the UK. We believe all children should have the opportunity to start the day with breakfast, and we know that equipment and resources are just as important to clubs as the food itself.”
Kellogg’s has supported 3,000 school breakfast clubs with funds, food and training over the last 20 years – that’s 70 million bowls of cereal to children all over the UK since 1998.
