Dane Court trio prove to be model students
Three students from Dane Court Grammar School in Broadstairs have just completed a four week stint leading creative sessions with day patients at Pilgrims Hospice Thanet.
Jack Hughes, Antoine Lacour and Dandré Opperman, all 17, led the clay tile and model making sessions with patients attending day time sessions on Wednesday afternoons as part of their Community Active Service module of their International Baccalaureate course.
All three enjoyed the experience and found it ‘enriching’. Antoine said: “The hospice is a very friendly community and far more casual than I thought it would be.”
Dandré, a keen artist and creative, added: “I’ve definitely enjoyed coming here and it’s been very satisfying being able to offer help and advice on making creative things.”
Jack said: “I feel much better for the experience of meeting patients and I’ve enjoyed all four weeks.”
