RE at University!

 

   
     
   

Over 70 pupils in Year 10 have recently had the opportunity to visit the RE/Philosophy departments at both Manchester and Lancaster University. They were able to have a taste of student life by having a lecture, seeing student accommodation and meeting university students who shared their experiences of university life. Miss Stanton said, “This is an amazing opportunity for pupils at the college to have a taster of university life and they were able to ask students about what university is really like. It gave the chance for pupils to think about their future and what they would like to achieve.”

 

 

German visitors come to DCC!

 

In the last term DCC has welcomed guests from Germany who wanted a taste of school life in the UK. 21 girls who play for Tus Grunenbaum football team in Germany and their coaches visited college as part of the Denton Town Twinning exchange programme, where they experienced the sights of Denton and the surrounding area. They commented on the fantastic facilities we have in college and how school life is very different here compared to Germany. Some Year 9 students helped to host the guests and they were great ambassadors for the college.

 

 

DCC General Election!

 

On Thursday 7th May 2015, the country went to the polls to elect a new government and here at Denton Community College, The Humanities Faculty wanted to highlight the importance of taking part in democracy by organising our own mock general Election.  By holding a whole-school mock election, we wanted to increase the awareness of politics in our student body. Our aim was to engage pupils, get them talking about the general election, get them asking questions and for them to have experience of taking part in the process of a real-democratic election.

 

The build-up to the mock election tried to mirror the real election. The atmosphere was electric! To start the whole process, form tutors asked their pupils to sign the electoral register.  Religious Education lessons were then adapted for each Year group to introduce the topic of politics and government. The next step of the process was to select Year 10 pupils to represent four fictional parties; Progress, Tomorrow, Transform and Vision. The selected pupils created manifestos and were tasked to create promotional information, posters and deliver speeches which would help them to win the mock election. The Year 10 pupils then delivered and pitched their manifestos to each year group during assemblies.
