Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SCHOOL REPORT -

ATRE NCH has been built in a school to re­mem­ber those who died in the World War. Pipers Cor­ner School in Great King­shill wel­comed his­to­rian and head­teacher of Wellington Col­lege, Sir An­thony Sel­don, to open the trench on Fri­day last week. It has been con­structed in the school hall to pro­vide a taste of what life would have been like in the war.

Head­teacher He­len Ness-Gif­ford said: “The cre­ation of the First World War trench has been a huge un­der­tak­ing for ev­ery­one in­volved, but thor­oughly worth­while. Hav­ing the op­por­tu­nity to in­spire and ed­u­cate our girls by bring­ing his­tory to life in such a spe­cial way has been hugely ben­e­fi­cial and all the staff have wel­comed it, mak­ing the most of this im­pres­sive re­source for teach­ing and learn­ing over the last few weeks.”

The school pupils have learned about trench war­fare, trench dis­ease and have re­searched mem­bers of their own fam­i­lies who lost their lives in the war.
