Dulwich Hamlet Help Year 9 With Coursework
Sahil, Year 9, reports on a recent trip to Dulwich Hamlet FC, where the boys met one of the directors to gain an insight into how the club's facilities and how they run match days. This links to the students' coursework, in which they have to create a user interface for a stadium, to act as an information system.
On this wonderful and sunny day, Harris Boys’ Academy East Dulwich had been invited to tour the Dulwich Hamlet FC stadium. We were very happy and delighted to be allowed on this trip. We found out much information about the club and could possibly pass the information on to other people who want to know about the club!
We Year 9s had toured nearly everything in the stadium; well of course the pitch, the stands, where bars and toilets are located, the main bar and the home changing room.
The club was founded in 1893 and is known as the most famous amateur club. The average attendance on a match is around 2,800 people. The manager of the club also gave us information on the facilities and what fans ask when they come to Dulwich Hamlet FC stadium. They even have their own boxing room for a famous boxer! How fascinating. They have many facilities in the stadium itself. This is listed as: a church, their own gym and a boxing room!
The picture on this page is us standing on the terraces. Usually fans stay there to watch the match. And there is a bar near there so if a fan is hungry they may be able to buy something. Also, there are toilets as well.
Help with coursework
I really enjoyed this trip and it gives me a lot of help which is related to my coursework in D.I.T! It’s going to give me good ideas on what to do with my information system and what not to do. We also had a map which we annotated so we could have a good understanding of where stuff is and where stuff isn’t.
The class 9G2 went together and we really enjoyed the trip as it gave us a good understanding of what Dulwich Hamlet FC is about. They told us the fixtures coming up and many more! Like I said, they gave us information which will help us with out course work. They told us what they specifically want in the email that they sent to Mr. Armstrong and we have got more information to put into our information system for the stadium when the fans and away fans are coming.
Thanks to our local club for letting our students come down. A Dulwich Hamlet spokesperson said: "The lads were impeccably behaved and a very bright bunch."
