DO­NA­TION: Pipers Cor­ner par­ents and teach­ers as­so­ci­a­tion has given funds to the Teenage Can­cer Trust. Morag Quinn from the as­so­ci­a­tion, for­mer stu­dent Lau­ren Shute, Pam Colling­ton from the as­so­ci­a­tion, Hay­ley Ac­ton De­boick from the Teenage Can­cer Trust, Gil­lian Valen­tine from the as­so­ci­a­tion, An­gelique Tam­bourine from the as­so­ci­a­tion and head­teacher He­len Ness-Gif­ford KIND­HEARTED pupils, par­ents and staff have handed over more than £10,000 to the Teenage Can­cer Trust.

Pipers Cor­ner School in Great King­shill raised the funds from var­i­ous events, in­clud­ing Christ­mas fayres, the Sum­mer ball and an in­dul­gence evening.

Teenage Can­cer Trust fundrais­ing rep­re­sen­ta­tive, Hay­ley Ac­ton De­boick said “It was such a plea­sure to come in and talk to the stu­dents. I was so over­whelmed when I was given the cheque that the speech I pre­pared went com­pletely out the win­dow. Pipers Cor­ner is such an amaz­ing school, it was a re­ally spe­cial day, thanks again for all the hard work that has gone into the fundrais­ing this.”

Chair­man of the school’s par­ent and teacher as­so­ci­a­tion (PPTA) Pam Colling­ton said: “We are very pleased with the fan­tas­tic fundrais­ing from par­ents, girls, staff and friends of Pipers Cor­ner. On be­half of the PPTA I would like to thank ev­ery­one who has sup­ported our events and for their ef­fort and gen­eros­ity through­out the past year.” SCHOOL chil­dren have learned how to do the dance of war.

Pupils at St Mary’s Church of Eng­land School in Old Amer­sham have been do­ing dance lessons to learn the Haka Maori dance. It is a tra­di­tional war dance from New Zealand that is used to frighten off the op­po­si­tion.

Teach­ing as­sis­tant Dawn Lam­min said: “We have been very im­pressed with our chil­dren’s en­thu­si­asm and orig­i­nal­ity, both in­di­vid­u­al­ity and also whilst work­ing in groups.

“So, be afraid if you are play­ing our school at foot­ball in the fu­ture.”
