The National Holocaust Centre Visit – Year 9

Year 9  students from Denton Community Collge visited the National Holocaust Centre this week. Students learnt about the origins of the Holocaust and evaluated how the Jewish people became a target for destruction.

The visit gave students the opportunity to reflect on what it was like to be a Jew living in Germany at the time of around World War 2 and gave a powerful lesson on antisemitism to those that went on the trip.

This interesting and educational trip provided important context for the students, it helped the students to remember the past whilst highlighting how they should protect the future. It proved a rewarding experience for all involved.

 

Red Nose Day 2015

On Friday 15 March, DCC came together with the rest of the country to do things big and small, that will add up to something massive.

Students attended with Red items of clothing in an attempt to raise funds for the charity event.

Since its launch in 1988, Red Nose Day has become something of a British institution. It’s the day, every two years, when people across the land can get together and raise money at home, school and work.

There’s a fantastic night of TV on the BBC, with comedy and entertainment to inspire the nation to give generously.

Comic Relief spends the money raised by Red Nose Day to help people living tough lives across the UK and internationally.

DCC is pleased to announce new recipients of the Platinum award. The new recipients include our first male and our first Year 7.

DCC Dance students “Move it” in London

Members of the DCC boys and girls dance company have returned from a jam-packed weekend in London. Students developed their understanding of the performing arts industry and had the opportunity to experience first-hand what it takes to be a professional dancer in the industry.

During their time in London, the students visited one of the world’s biggest dance conventions ‘Move It’ where students got the opportunity to talk to the leading performing arts colleges, take workshops with professional dance companies and watch a variety of performances.

Students also took a workshop at Danceworks studio on Bond Street as well as watching the West End production of Matilda. They even managed to fit in a bit of site seeing.

The students were impeccable and a real credit to the school throughout the trip.

 

Denton Community College is pleased to announce its new Platinum Collection!

Cliodhna, Jade and Mille, all Year 8 students, became the first recipients of Denton Community College’s newest reward. The girls have individually received over 1000 positive points, smashing the target for a ‘Gold Rewards’ badge.

In order to recognise this fantastic achievement, the girls have become the inaugural winners of the ‘Platinum Achievement Award’. The achievement is even more remarkable considering that it is only March!

Well done from everyone, thank you for setting new standards for the whole college to aim for.
