DGGS Triumph at Kent Schools Trampoline Finals

A special congratulations to the DGGS Trampoline Squad who competed on Wednesday 13th March at the Rebound Centre, Gillingham in the Kent Schools Finals. The outstanding results below are credit to the hard work and dedication of all students involved, and, in particular a huge thank you goes to Head Coach Keith Sleafer who without his support such success would not be possible. Not only did the squad represent DGGS with greater participation numbers than any other school but their achievements were second to none. The list below shows all students who took part as well any top 3 placings.

DGGS Shortlisted for 2018 Tennis Award

We were delighted to attend an Awards ceremony run by the Kent Lawn Tennis Association recently.  DGGS was shortlisted for the Education Award.  Well done to all our tennis players!

Extract taken from the 2018 Annual Awards booklet

In Years 7-10 every class at Dartford Grammar School for Girls plays tennis in one lesson a week for six weeks, in Year 11-13 tennis is optional and very popular.  Red, orange and green balls are used to allow everyone to enjoy the game at their level.  There are squad training sessions for both team training and recreational play, interhouse competitions, a Road to Wimbledon competition, trips to Eastbourne and Wimbledon and teams and LTA Schools Team Tennis.  In 2018, they reached the Kent finals.  The school has links with the local community and tennis clubs and players with talent are encouraged to further their tennis at a club.

The Kent Schools Athletics Finals was one of the most exciting and enjoyable events I have taken part in so far throughout my time in Year 7 at DGGS. As students, we encountered various races, ranging from 200 to 600m, as well as challenging relay and obstacle races.

As for the field events, students were selected to participate in numerous events, such as: the vertical jump, the standing long jump, the triple jump, speed bounce and many more.

Thank you to Mrs Bluett and Mrs Coxall and I hope that I will be able to take part again in Year 8.

Year 8 Sports Hal Athletics Team 2019

On Tuesday 5th February 2019, six competitors from Year 8 took part in the Kent Indoor Athletics Finals after winning the qualifiers earlier in the year. The students that took part were Anne, Jehona, Rommy, Toun, Freya and Olivia. Everyone competed in at least one field and one track event. The track events included a two lap, four lap and six lap running race, an obstacle and normal relay, as well as an 8 lap parlauf. 

The field events included triple jump, long jump, speed bounce, shot put, and vertical jump. In each event there were either 14 or 28 competitors and points were allocated to each team depending on where they placed.

Overall, our team managed to come third with 394 points, just five points off first place. We all received a bronze medal and were very proud of the fact we were the third best athletic team in the whole of Kent!

Thank you to Mrs Bluett and Mrs Coxall for organising and taking us to the competition!
